Album Review
Margy Kahn
Reviewed 2016-02-03 
The Empresarios ('businessmen' in Spanish) call themselves a “Tropicaliente” group,. They fuse salsa, house, reggae, dub, and hiphop. All eminently danceable and varied. Great horn section and some good singers. Favorite tracks: 4, 7
No FCC's detected – mostly Spanish lyrics

1-3:50 –rap lyrics in Spanish; electronica with horns

2 –4:08 – cumbia sounding; very catchy

3-3:46 – rocking rhythm with Spanish lyrics, electronica

*4-4:02- leads off with horn section, rapper Ephniko comes in; some English

5-4:37 –“Encanto” – chorus singing and rap, punctuated by horns

6-3:42 – starts off with bass, chorus and synth drone

*7-4:19 –salsa with singer and orchestra; light and bouncy

8-4:26 – starts with horn salute, nice strings; spacey sound effects; all with underlying beat

9-3:53- synth, reggae sound with horns, all instrumental

10-3:38 – starts a little softer; slower beat; interesting organ sounds, horn section amps up, beat picks up a little, goes back and forth
