El Condado De La Salsa y Jazz Latino May 2020 by Nelson Rodriguez

During this devastating time in the world music has been a way of relieving the stress and horrible news of the day. At Alma Del Barrio we went to automated programming of which I had the privilege of programming an entire weekend and two weeks later both Saturday and Sunday 6am-9am slots. As I heard back the programming, during these mornings, I listened to all the new tracks and recent adds that I had not fully heard. It made me realize that there is an impressive amount of great new songs in 2020 that will be imbedded in the minds of fans and DJ’s as well.

My imposed staycation has also allowed me to update my artist files, photos, magazines, CD’s and restructure my files which in turn inspired me to write new articles on the history of this wonderful music. It is a time that has also allowed me to work on previous projects that I always wanted to do.

My staycation has also allowed me to listen to many internet Radio stations and my favorites have been the Hard Salsa (Salsa Dura) stations in Mexico (Salsa Mexico), Panama (Salsa 106), New York (La Catedral De La Salsa) and Colombia (Colombia Salsa Dura & Salsa Gorda Radio). I enjoy Zeta 93 in Puerto Rico but there you only get mostly acts from PR which limits listeners from the great songs being produced worldwide. At Zeta 93 even the oldies are PR based or basically Fania artists. On the Internet stations you get lots of “La Otra Salsa’.

While this pandemic will probably last longer than we thought and hugely affect how we do things in the future internet radio has made a huge leap in these past few months and will continue to grow.

So far in the year 2020 eight to ten great CD’s that will probably be in the best CD’s of this new decade were released. Four CD’s that were scheduled to be out by now are rescheduled for release in the summer.

Eduardo Zayas has been steadily composing songs, which is his forte and is almost finished with his next release. His CD, “Nacido Entre Titanes”, that had 17 tracks on two CD’s is one of the year’s biggest surprises and while the next CD will not have a s many tracks it promises to be just as good as his debut. This young mas is one of today’s brightest composers and has a huge career ahead of him.

Luisito Carrion has been making many guest appearances in 2020 and appears several times on this playlist. While he is no stranger to making these guest appearances on other artists productions/singles it is a sign of what many popular vocalists, like Gilberto Santa Rosa has been doing. My guess is that this is the way many will be looking to generate money in the coming years. Some of the more popular names, starting with GSR who has been doing this at a rapid pace these past few years, have been Victor Manuelle, Herman Olivera, Frankie Vazquez, Ismael Miranda, Marcial Isturiz, Jose Alberto ‘El Canario’, Edgar ‘Dolor’ Quijada, Alex D’ Castro, Mayito Rivera, Isaac Delgado that you see on a regular basis as guest vocalists. While being a guest vocalist is not a new concept the increase is constantly growing for each of the vocalists I mentioned.

Now go enjoy the titles on this hit parade and support the artists who are hurting now worse than ever.
