Monareta "Me Voy Pa'l Mar"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Nacional
Combining electro with more traditional cumbia and champeta sounds from their native Colombia, Brooklyn-by-way-of-Bogota duo Monareta is part of the growing wave of artists pushing the boundaries of exactly what constitutes "Latin" music. Taken from their latest album, Picotero, "Me Voy Pa'l Mar" features a pulsing beat, crunchy electronic flourishes, and a sultry female vocal (en Español, of course). What results is a song that could easily get hips swinging on both sides of the equator.
