Orquesta El Macabeo
Among the leading lights of the revolución of new salsa, Puerto Rico’s own Orquesta el Macabeo are more than just some punk generation metalheads playing their parents’ music. They are, in fact, a tight, searing, brassy salsa ensemble of high caliber precision and interesting, darkly humorous lyrics sung in an atypical way. A unique combination of traditional salsa dura elements with a garage/punk/pop spirit. Macabeo have releases on a number of labels, including Discos de Hoy, Peace & Rhythm, Vampisoul, Electric Cowbell and others. Since 2008.
