Oscar is undoubtedly one of the best entertainers on this planet.
But you might think that Oscar D’Leon’s version of La Mazucamba is actually a cover of El Gran Combo’s hit from 1968
But -as so often with many salsa hits- this is actually a cover of (how could it be otherwise) La Sonora Matancera featuring the still young Celia Cruz.
Although technically the same song, melody and lyrics, with Oscar the song definitely arrives in the 21st century.
The groove is one of those Caribbean fusion-grooves that make everybody smile and dance.
Oscar add’s a coro-pregón section and also great mambos.
Larga vida para ti, Oscar!
