La Despedida - Spanish for "The Farewell" - is a breakup album. A psychedelic, post-apocalyptic meta-breakup album by a band that has broken up more than once. For over a decade, San Lazaro have been playing and writing original Latin music in Melbourne. A tribe of lost Latinos, cobbled together from all over the Spanish speaking world. From Chile to Cuba to Catalonia, they've come together at the Southern end of Australia to sing the songs they needed to sing and tell the stories they needed to tell.
- Premiered the first single 'Amor De Despedida' on Wax Poetics on 4/5/16
- Deluxe gatefold vinyl package
- Strong roots in New York salsa, Afro-cuban rumba and cumbia, with a dash of psychedelia.
- Sounds like a genuine 1970's record from latin america or the New York's salsa scene.
- Sung in spanish (one song english)
- Previous Salsa record from HopeStreet Recordings (Quarter Street LP) did really well with EU/UK listeners.
