Synopsis

Album Description
Chakachas was a sextet of Belgian studio musicians, all middle-aged and married, who got together, recorded some sides and then went their separate ways. Polydor Records then issued those sides stateswide, and, to the surprise of everyone no doubt, one of their songs, 'Jungle Fever', became a hit in 1972.
 

CD Reviews

European Latin Heroes
Inge Naess | 12/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I used to have this record on vinyl back in the seventies. I thought it was fun then, but now I find even better! I just love this kind of latin pop music. The second track "Un Rayo Del Sol" is really a pure classic, and the whole CD is packed with well-played latin music. I didn't know that the musicians were mostly Dutch and Belgian until I got the CD which offers more information on the band than did the cover of my vinyl copy.
Listening to the steamy hot "Jungle Fever" you would never suspect them to be European! If you're a fiend for rhythmic well-played dance music this one ought to be a choice for you!"
