Changüí Majadero – “Vamos Pal Guaso” (video) (premeire)

Hypnotically repetitive and gloriously syncopated, "Vamos Pal Guaso" is captivating and liberating.

Changüí Majadero make, as the name might suggest, changüí, a Cuban style of music defined by stuttering hand drums and twirling guitars and bass. It’s an exercise in rhythmic gymnastics, providing the rump-shaking verve of salsa, one of its descendants. “Vamos Pal Guaso” shakes and shivers, the bassline jumping every which way behind acrobatic vocal harmonies. Hypnotically repetitive and gloriously syncopated, the song is captivating and liberating.

Changüí Majadero’s El Changüí Majadero releases September 16th.
