“Recoge” B/W “Plato Típico” is the stunning second 7” single by Los Angeles quintet Yanga. Flawless mix of Afro-Latinx rhythms and sounds recorded as if they don’t belong to a specific time or place. One of my favorite recordings of 2022. |
Something else from the press release:
"Yanga makes their long-awaited return to Names You Can Trust with two new scorching originals, further building upon a foundation of Afro-Colombian rhythms like cumbia, garabato and zambapalo. Much like their debut release, Yanga channels a new and refreshing take to the many divergent styles within the region, combining the traditional aspects of Afro-Latin percussion, with the dark and delightful energy of the amped accordion, all tucked under the fiery vocals of cantadora Eddika Organista."
RIYL: Almas Fronterizas, Meridian Brothers, Ritmos Tropicosmos, Tropique, and Combo Chimbita.
