Washington D.C.-based Tropicaliente group Empresarios releases new track “Secretaria (Empresarios Dubplate Especial).” This new track is a remix of classic hit “La Secretaria,” originally made popular by Salvadorian cumbia ensemble Los Hermanos Flores almost 30 years ago. With this new remix, the Empresarios hope to turn this traditional cumbia into a more modern version to introduce to new listeners and drag their attention to the original hit.
Empresarios signature dance-party sound with loud horns and percussion is the result of mixing some classic Latin grooves. Their title of “Kings of Tropicaliente” – a Caribbean music style- comes from each one of the band members combining salsa, dub, cumbia, house and reggae to form their very unique style. Their most recent album El Sonido Mágico was released in November of last year. This album features songs “Salsa de Gala,” “Volume” and “7th Street Groove,” among others. As always, you can be sure the Empresarios will make you want to stand up and dance.
