If you love Cuban culture and are lucky enough to live in Houston and don’t already know the area’s long-time Cuban singer Angel “Angelucho” Bermúdez, now is your opportunity. He has long been dubbed among locals, Houston’s most elegant Salsa artist, boasting one of the most commanding voices on the tropical music scene: a graceful baritone that handles slow Boleros with romanticism and lively Salsas with verve.
His vibrant interpretations of the hot modern Latin rhythms with resonating brass and piano runs hearkens back to the golden age of Cuban music of the 1950s as well as the brassy and modern sounds of the New York Salsa and Cuban-influences Miami-sound rhythms. Angelucho’s excellent timing, unique inspirations, and his overall Latin soul have made him a favorite in Houston and other parts of the nation for many years.
Cuban music lovers will delight in sample tracks like “Realidad Y Fantasia” from the CD “Soy Latino” and his compilation on SoundCloud, or check out his new recording under the guidance of producer/composer Rainel Pino features such great artists as the one and only Papo Lucca of “Sonora Ponceña” fame on piano, René Lorente on flute, and Kachiro Thompson on congas. He is also accompanied by Douglas Guevara on timbal, Jorge “Cro Cro” Orta on congas, and Ernesto Camilo Vega on saxophone.
The musical production is entitled “Soy Latino” and contains ten songs that range from Montuno, Bolero, Cha Cha Cha, Charangón to today’s popular Salsa. As always, Angelucho’s voice is endearing and the arrangements are modern and swinging, making his new Compact Disc a must for serious “Salsero”.
