By Monsieur Periné

Singing and playing with a nostalgic-for-a-Latin-American-renaissance spirit, Colombia’s dixie-swing septet reinvent traditional folk ballads into modern day folk ballads composed by Catalina García and Santiago Prieto of Monsieur Periné. Yes, ballads are still very relevant, and “Huracán” would almost seem like a tune made by Latin America’s ballad pioneers Los Panchos from that golden age of romance. In this song, a hurricane is described as a kiss, singing how a lovers kiss are like hurricanes inside one’s mouth. How lovely.
