Tremendo Boogaloo

Freestyle Records

Released: 4th June 2007 | 9 track latin & world jazz album
Formed by sexy Colombian singer Martha Acosta and bass guitarist/MD Don Fiora (Javier Fioramonti) for the Hogmanay festival in Edinburgh 2001. Manteca proved to be at the cutting edge of the Latin scene, leading over 3,000 people at the World Music Stage salsa-ing into the New Year to their unique style of Urban Latin Funk. Since then Manteca have become well known for creating a party mood at festivals and gigs all around the world. Martha's love for music is simply in her genes. Daughter of a music and fun loving “Barranquillero†she was dancing and singing ‘musica tropical’ from an early age. More recently, she not only formed the all-female Latin outfit 'Candela', but also sang lead vocals for bands including 'Roberto Pla's Latin Ensemble'. With a ‘non-strictly-salsa’ background, Don Fiora approaches Latin music from a new direction, respecting its roots whilst incorporating the new emerging city-grooves. He has accompanied big names of the Latin world like Jack Costanzo, Henry Fiol, Azuquita, Maelo Ruiz and Luisito Carrion. Containing the huge selling singles Tremendo Boogaloo, Pa'Lante and De Todo, this album shows the band in storming form and hitting the spot every time.
