Musica del Alma is back, and I am stoked to no end. Until a week of so ago, there had been no movement over there. A lesser blog would have been left for dead. But it had become a favorite of mine, so I kept checking back. It's not like there wasn't enough there to dig through for the last year and a half. It's chocked full of odd obscure Latin music, of all types; traditional, soul, funk, and rock, and just plain weird. The newest post is a mix, but there's some more action at the accompanying site, Discos Alma. Three mixes (so far) and a link to records for sale on ebay, all at set prices (that seem relatively fair) and most with long sound clips (wink wink nudge nudge).
Here's a few from Musica del Alma. They've all been posted before, but it'll give you an idea of what goes on over there.
