Congreso - Pichanga (1992)

The 12th album from this band from this band from Chile.

The band was now an eight piece big band with a lineup of marimba, drums, percussion, bass, guitars, woodwinds, piano, programming, synths, recorder and Spanish vocals.

They had help from two guitarists and numerous vocalists, including a children choir.

The band had released some good albums in the 1970s and the 1980s. They are living legends and I am one of them who both respect and pretty much admire this band. There is a place in the hearts of all music lovers for bands like Congreso. Not at least because of their background.

The music on this album is a bit of a mix of pop and folk rock. There is not much jazz here. None, in fact.

There is also some children music here who falls a bit flat on it's face.

The first half of this album is good whilst the remaining ten to fifteen minutes of the forty-six minutes long album can be bypassed.

The result is somewhere between good and decent... although the first part is so good that I will give it a good rating.

3 points
