Bailemos Con Marimba


Well mis amigos, now it's time for some marimba music, very popular back in the good ol' days here in Mexico (but I still can't picture myself having a marimba dance party, like the people in the cover), anyways, marimba music is very enjoyable, and very difficult to play, well that's what el senor tells me (he can't even play air guitar), so don't listen to him.

There goes another version of "The Girl From Ipanema", for those of you who like to gather different versions of a song on the same CD.

And Here's The Track List:

01- La Chica De Ipanema
02- Fascinacion
03- Mas

05- El Marrito
06- La Mentira
07- El Choclo
08- Chica De Cumbia
09- Recuerdos De Ipacari
10- Tapachula

Please Enjoy!! and remember to play this record only on Stereophonic Equipment!

Beto Diaz Y La Orquesta De La Provincia

Introducing from Zacatecas, Mexico: Beto Diaz And His Province Orchestra, born in 1934, Diaz formed his first band at age 12, with such names as "Son Tropical", "Son Clave de Oro", "Son Caribe" and "Son Estrella".

In 1952 he had the idea of forming a band with some of his friends, with the main purpose of playing music for thier girlfriends in a serenata, and later came up with the name "Conjunto Juvenil".

They evolved into a more sophisticated band with the addition of violins, trumpets, guitars, and the accordion of Beto, and recorded their first E.P. under the name of "Beto Diaz' Juvenile Orchestra". After the album's success, the company sent them a telegram saying "You made it!, now it's time to record the full LP".

After the celebration party, Diaz tought that success finally arrived for an orchestra from the "provinces", as most of the orchestras from the time were from Mexico City, thus changing the name to the "Province Orchestra".

The album has some very minor glitches, but the music is great (a weird mix of swing, rock & roll and tropical!!!)

And Here's The Track List:

01- Malaguena
02- Chahuahua
03- Baila Amalia (Amalia Batista-La Calle 12, El Caballo Blanco-Cachita-El Taconazo-La Viuda Alegre)
04- La Cancion De Amor
05- Baila Conejo (Baile Del Conejo-Colina Azul-El Tigre-Embustero Rebelde)
06- Palitos Chinos
07- La Violetera
08- Americano (Hazme Creer-Luisa-Mi Cielo Azul)
09- Ojitos Traicioneros
10- Solo
11- Envidias
