“Bugalu Foundation are the fresh new sound of Barrio Funk and Latin Soul! A band who connect the past to the present whilst pointing to the future. A bunch of musicians from the north of England who sound like they’ve just stepped out of a Spanish Harlem nightclub at 4am around 1973! Blindfold test, when you hear ‘Funcadelico’ or ‘Ritmo Con Melodia’, you start thinking Roberto Roena’s Apollo Sound, Ricardo Marrero & Time or Ray Barretto’s fusion era band on CTI Records. ‘Amanacer’ has the pure Chicano soul spirit of Malo, Azteca or El Chicano. Add a little pinch of afrobeat, some Latin boogie, hip hop attitude and jazz chops that can take anyone on and the result is “la combinacion perfecta”! Yes, these Northern Latin soul brothers have got it going on, no doubt about that! I love them… I want more music! I want to see them playing live everywhere… bring on the Barrio Funk Revolution… the Bugalu Foundation are here!”
DJ Lubi, International latin music DJ since 1982, CD compiler for Fania/Nascente/Freestyle
