Quiribi (Yamil Remix)

Rosalinda de la Espada

MoBlack Records
MBR426 | 2021-04-02  
Well, we’re glad his Road to Nowhere has led here. We welcome Yamil back on MoBlack Records to deliver our 426th imprint, bringing an underrated Rosalinda de la Espada classic across the turn of millenium, and into the limelight. The Spanish DJ/Producer’s 2021 dance revival of ‘Hermanito Mio Quiribi’ lets us savor the sound of cumbia, a track that can steep the soul of Panama in any dancefloor through to its finish.
The rich cultures and traditions that melt in the transcontinental republic’s pot impregnates its music with depth, and Yamil carefully preserves that. Maneuvering the original’s quintessence with grace, his rendition is vibrant, vivid and voracious. Percussion seeps deeply and the hi-hats are warm to the touch, the Afro groove is suave, and the Latin infusions are seductive. With subtle electronic tweaks that invigorate rapture, Quiribi is lush. But it is Rosalinda de la Espada’s soulful storytelling at the marrow of both the original and remix that elevates ‘Quiribi’ from the depths of past to the motion of present. The late folk heroine’s timeless vocals, robust and heartened by history - her story, lands in perfect harmony with Yamil’s midas touch for a track that makes us just want to dance forever, anywhere, everywhere.
