Somewhere in my DNA, a gene from my latino heritage is activated by this record.
The guitar and percussion are just silly good.

GO LISTEN TO: Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen
Near perfect latin rock record. Black Magic Woman cover from Fleetwood Mac, Oye Como Va, my personal favorite.
Fleetwood vs Santana Black magic woman?. Now that is a hard question

Not the absolute most boring artist of all time but definitely in the top 1.

Everybody’s dad loves this dude, so just like everyone else Mr Sultana was a big part of my childhood.

Now, well, it’s Nandos music. 'Music to eat spicy chicken by' etc. In other words, harmless ethno-jammy friendly mildly progressive hippy-bliss pap.
