Lo Mejor Vol 2
The second of two compilations featuring the best of Colombian salsa icons Siguarajazz. For the first time on vinyl are songs from their five albums recorded between 2009 and 2015. A musical reference in the city of Medellín since 1999, Siguarajazz has developed a production and exploration through Afro-Caribbean music and Salsa brava, establishing itself as one of the most outstanding bands in their musical field. Under the direction of Juan Fernando García, aka "Juancito Trucupey", the band started in Medellín's neighborhoods and have arrived in unexpected places in the world. The force of their compositions, honesty in their lyrics, strong, well-syncopated rhythms, as well as the aestheticism and sound in every part of their discography, make it the best music proposal to have emerged from the Colombian capital department Antioquia. ?Siguarajazz is the perfect combination between tradition and modernity which narrates thorough its music the history of the Medellín's neighborhoods and its most picturesque characters; starting from the routine of a city in constant transformation, to the heritage of the grandparents, the sounds of the street as well as the surrounding rhythms of the Latin music. Creativity, and interpretative strength are a fundamental part of Siguarajazz's process of projection and production, a process that has resulted in five musical productions which attest to their constant evolution and commitment to Latin American musical culture?.? -- Diego Aranda. A joint edition produced by Colombian label Hit Musical and Siguaraya Producciones.
