SONG OF THE DAY Johnny Ventura Y Su Combo – Guajira Con Soul

Following on from last weeks Latin funk/Boogaloo theme, I’ve found this little beauty today!

Juan de Dios Ventura Soriano, a.k.a Johnny Ventura (or El Caballo Johnny Ventura) is a Dominican singer and band leader of merangue and salsa.  Embarking on a music career in 1959, he started he first began singing in several bands and in 1062 released his first LP!

Guajira Con Soul appears on his 1968 album, El Mamito, but I’m struggling to determine if this is its original release date? Either way this sizzling slice of Latin funk has all the right ingredients to make my ears dance and my hips sway!  Check it out above.
