#RecordOfTheDay “Malagueña” by Pico

Thank you to everyone who came out to the  La Chamba and Money Chicha show. It was a great night of psychedelic cumbia. At one point during Money Chicha’s set I recognized a song that I couldn’t quite place, but then I realized I was listening to a cover of the Cuban/Spanish classic Malagueña. It’s a flamenco song that’s been covered in many different styles over the years. I actually first knew it as a disco track from the classic New York disco label West End Records by a group called Pico. I bought this record for the same reason I think anyone ever did, the dope percussion break half way through. It’s worth the wait.
