Mix of the Day: Discos Alma “Pana-Soul”


Latin rythms have influenced music throughout america but less is discussed about Soul music’s influence on latin music. Panama is a region overflowing with some of the finest latin soul ever put to wax but to put together a full mix of these songs is quite a digging feat indeed.

California’s Discos Alma has one of the most exciting latin vinyl collections this side of the ecuator and this is a spledid mix of feel good panamanian soul and lush latin ballads released on 45. Guaranteed to bring the sunshine to any place it is played.
