Blood, Sweat & Funk

















Two great compilations of recently unearthed Central American music that I picked up at Rough Trade.

Firstly Panama! is a collection of latin, calypso and funk from the little country that invented reggaeton. Latin heat thats much needed in the winter months.

Los Fabuloso Festivals - El Mensaje (Z-share)

Secondly, not far away Belize City Boil Up up is more on a disco funk reggae tip that sounds nothing like music from central America. Makes me think of sweaty soulshack raves in 60s.

Harmonettes - Shame Shame Shame (Z-share)


This is a photo I took at a bar on Ambergris caye, Belize. Love those crazy staring eyes with that gormless open mouth. Damn girl, your killing me.
