cha cha la negra ARMANDO OREFICHE

Margarita Sierra - Cha Cha Twist

Here’s Dusty Ballroom’s third set of sides — a rather eclectic, swingin’ blend of some 1940s jump blues, ’50s exotic mambo, kinky doo-wop, wild eastern surf, and Hawaiian Rock n’ Roll, a coupla burlesque instrumentals and even a bit of groovy twist and soul. This record is part of an ongoing series dedicated to some often overlooked golden age dancefloor thrillers. Stag-O-Lee hope you dig this as much as they do and perhaps you will tune in on the next volume as well. Elmo Lewis is part of the Dusty Ballroom collective, shakin’ the Berlin analog music scene since 2008. As mentioned on Vol. 1 (have you got it yet?) (STAGO 120LP, 21018), over time the group need to give nods and winks to the staff of several venues, lots of live artists wonderfully dedicated to old music, a few select DJs and of course those jumpin’ and jivin’ cats and kittens oddly enough returning to our all-nighters — you all rock and roll!
