Latin Freedom Compilation: REVIEW

The record launch of the Latin 2012/2013 season will be placed in the hands of a new look music
publication, full of good sounds and great creative inspirations: Latin Freedom Compilation. Produced by
Otra Fuente together with Alosibla Music Group, Latin Freedom Compilation will make its official debut by
the end of September, with the first volume of a series which will satisfy the most dauntless and tireless of

15 well composed and stylistically matched songs contribute to create a varied sound, in which the
different interpretations and diverse musical characteristics reveal the multitude of its artistic origins and
sources to an cultured listening audience.

Great romantic salsa and the passionate voice of Maikel Lopez start proceedings with Mientes, a wonderful
song with rich, elaborate arrangements which are at the same time fluid and dynamically well put together.
It’s pure timba for Potenza de Calle with La Sal, Cuban energy, brimming and barnstorming. In keeping with
this mood, Latin Sound Machine follows with the salsa version of Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, the
famous hit by Sting, which maintains the atmosphere thanks to its delicate fusion. Bercy makes his debut
in Italy with Enamorado De Ti, an attractive bachata, classical and pleasant, performed with the precious
collaboration of Gino Dj. Next comes a remake of Yo Dependo, performed by Maikel Lopez. Previously
released, it is now re-released in a more complete and up-to-date version. Next up is merengue/mambo
with Franklin Ingeniero who offers us Ya Se Acabò, in perfect Urban Style. It’s now time to enjoy JT Latin
Factory, a popular group with a chain of hits. With its Perdon, the group offers an adaptation of the original
version of the song with a more Salsatón-oriented arrangement. Taken from his latest album soon to be a
hit, Fito Gress offers us Que Particular, a homage to the capital of his Cuba and its atmospheres. The song
is a wonderful duet with Alexander Abreu y Habana de Primera. The irrepressible Ginecologo del Ritmo
performed by its writer Antonio Da Costa is presented in a more Cuban style thanks to the impetuous
contribution of “La Cuadrilla”.

Esta Vez is the prestigious debut of Adam Vee, an exquisite bachata arranged
in collaboration with Alex Bulcea, leader of the group Mandinga. El Timba Dj presents a new extended
version of Yo Quiero Amar. With this remix it’s the chance for him to show once again the originality of
the song. The group Talento Avana don’t waste time and continue their string of hits. Their Besame is the
new smash hit. Pablo Timba Dj presents Wemelire, a work full of Cuban sounds, immediate and lively. The
maestro Massimo Scalici and the group Timba Calle collaborate for the elaborate arrangements.
Armando Mirando is the special guest, founder and leader of Mecado Negro; from him comes Montuno
Con Sentimiento, the Latin emotion of a strong voice as well as an artist of undisputed experience.
Alfredo Peralta, alias Dj Mariachi, closes the compilation with his Mis Ilusiones, a tango-bachata for the
most sophisticated and passionate of lovers of typical and unusual sounds. As a bonus track there’s the
unplugged version of Tell You How I Am Feeling by Latin Sound Machine. The warm voice of Fabio Ilacqua
along with the piano of Fabio Gianni strip their previous hit of all of its rhythms, letting it float in its own
acoustic ambience.
A final deserved thank to the performers, authors and composers who have contributed to the musical
creation of this project.
The highest compliments go out to the entire staff of Otra Fuente and Alosibla Music Group for the
coordination of the production.
