Ángel Canales the Legacy Perico Macoña
Angel Canales is an icon of Salsa, one of the performers who despite his early retirement, his music is still frequently played in countries like Colombia, Venezuela, Peru and Panama among others, his legacy has impacted many generations of musicians and producers, who admire his ideas, his rebelliousness, his daring when choosing arrangers and musicians, breaking patterns and schemes.
“Perico Macoña”, the voice of Mauro Mosquera from Colombia and the urban touch with Budu from Venezuela.
This musical project was born with the idea of showing this legacy to new generations, keeping the essence in the arrangements and without trying to imitate him, each performer gives a new personality to the songs, a production full of special guests, directed by the young talent Irving Manuel, the first promotional cut was presented in November 2019 in the voice of Rafu Warner with the classic “Hace Tiempo”.
Beginning in 2020 the recordings continued until the whole project and the recording of the guests was delayed due to the pandemic, although not with the same speed several musical sessions could be finished and thanks to today’s technology that allows us to record from a distance, the second single of the production entitled “Perico Macoña” was completed, the voice of Mauro Mosquera from Colombia and the urban touch with Budu from Venezuela, achieving a mix between the classic sound and the current.
These two songs are available worldwide on all digital platforms and of course on YouTube. Throughout the year, the new cuts of the production will continue to be presented, seeking to bring together a strong group of guests who, with all due respect, will take this musical legacy to new generations to last for many years to come.
