Charo - Espana Cani

Charo will forever be known for her signature "Cuchi-Cuchi" line made famous on the Love Boat, however she should be remembered for her contributions to music. During the height of Disco music's popularity, Charo released a few singles and an album with the Salsoul Orchestra on the legendary Salsoul label. "Dance A Little Closer" and "Ole Ole" are two somewhat famous songs she did. She has continued her recording career. With the latest single, she takes a step back and doesn't sing or talk on the song. Instead, she plays the guitar. "Espana Cani" is a famous Spanish instrumental piece. Charo has been recording her guitar music for a number of years. This time, it's set to pulsating tribal beats and soaring synths. Aimed at the dancefloors of the world, this song has several remixes in addition to the Dancey original. Twisted Dee, Julian Marsh and Peitor Angell provide the remixes. Twisted Dee's is a hard-hitting tribal stomper that continues in the direction of the original. Julian Marsh's is a bit more Eurodance-sounding, however, it is faithful to the original. Peitor Angell's is a little milder, but the energy level never drops. Additional mixes by Tony Moran have been completed, howver, there are no additional details about a possible release of those. Overall, this package is a must-have. This can be compared in terms of its sheer brilliance to the remix package completed in 2006 for Gustavo Santaolalla's "The Wings" which was the instrumental theme from the movie Brokeback Mountain. Buy the mixes on a CD single or as a digital download here.
