Review: El Chino Y La Diferencia “Mamboland”

Here we have another nice production made in Italy from the Abanico Record label featuring El Chino Y La Diferencia with their new Album Mamboland. This new album has a few covers originally recorded by Tito Puente such as “Ran Kan Kan” and “El Rey Del Timbal” which features Tito Puente Jr. on timbales. 

 It also has some very good dance floor tracks which I enjoyed very much Chupito Jam, Tres Marias, El Chino y La Diferencia, and Guapo Na’ just to name a few. I highly recommend that DJs pick this CD/Vinyl up and add it to your arsenal. Salsa lovers should definitely add it to your music collection.

 I have added a preview track “Chupito Jam” for your listening enjoyment.

 I will provide where you can buy the CD and/or Vinyl as soon as I get it.
