If there’s one thing we can get behind, it’s the push to hear more contemporary Latin music around town. Not that we aren’t satisfied to just sit at our house listening to our Ray Barreto 45s and our Tito Puente LPs, but we need some new hotness every once in a while. And though we do try our best to follow the music that’s happening in the other 3/5 of our hemisphere, sometimes even we need an expert to help to sort through it all. That’s where the Columbian Party Cartel steps in. The CPC crew have an ear for what’s awesome and international like few others in town, and the continued success of their weekly En Fuego party is proof. Swanky and suave like nobody else, the CPC are guaranteed to show you how the rest of the world shakes it.
