Los Destellos


  1. wow I've never listened to psycadellic folk music. This is very interesting :)

  2. Wow great compilation. Thanks for the post.

  3. yes this is amazing, thank you so much for your time and energy; you live with honor.

  4. really great collection. searching around for more. thanks

  5. Totally awesome album!

    Gives me hope to know that music like this exists out there! Gives me happiness just listening to it!

    Thanks very much!

  6. I'm certainly no expert on types of Latin music but I love the cumbias.

    For anyone thinking of downloading, I was reminded of Carlos Santana in the late 60s and Cuban jazz sounds too. And some yells reminded me of Perez Prado! Throw in some 60's guitar sounds and there ya go.

    I played this 4 times over right away! Loud too! Wished I knew how to dance!

    Thanks for the share, mi amigo!
