Luisito Carrión ∙ Osvaldo Román ∙ Mel Martinez ∙ Bernie Pérez ∙ Choco Orta ∙ Rei Peña ∙ Cachiro Thompson ∙ Tempo Alomar ∙ Pucho MP ∙ Samuel Vélez ∙ Pedro Pérez ∙ Rolo Alejandro ∙ Moisés "El Combo" Nogueras ∙ Rigo Díaz ∙ Bobby Pérez ∙ Ramón Castro ∙ Sammy Rivera ∙ Josué Rosado



Durante la grabación del proyecto "Protagonistas de la Salsa", salió en diversas conversaciones el tópico de que ya no se hace Salsa como antes, tanto Rei Peña como Willie Sotelo, son dos auténticos hijos de la salsa Gorda. Así que decidí proponerles hacer algo con el concepto del ayer pero con el sonido de hoy, para el bailador parece a simple vista sencillo, pero no lo es, los arreglistas han cambiado conceptos y no digamos los músicos, así que desarrollamos el concepto de quienes y por qué. Surgieron nombres y el repertorio, todo ello fue cuidadosamente meditado. Willie y Rei se pusieron manos a la obra, pasaron apuros de todo tipo, pero ayudados con el corazón y la amistad de un grupo ejemplar de músicos se llegó a esta obra que usted tiene en sus manos. Después de haber producido en mi carrera más de 400 obras, puedo decir con todo orgullo que esta es de las que más satisfecho estoy y agradezco a estos dos verdaderos amigos, todo el apoyo de la dedicación que han derrochado en este proyecto, que intuyo va a ser todo un suceso en el contexto salsero de hoy. "Salsa gorda para el bailador". Así pues... ¡¡¡ que viva la salsa!!!.

During the recording of the project "Protagonistas de la Salsa". we spoke in several conversations about the topic that Salsa music is not being played anymore like formerly, as Rei Peña and Willie Sotelo are both authentic sons of the "Salsa Gorda", then I decided to propose them to do something with the concept of yesterday, with today's sound, for the dancer it seems to be easy and simple, but it is not simple at all. Arrangers and musicians have changed concepts since a few years, so that we had to develop a new concept and to choose the team according to our ideal to make it reality. It was meticulously meditated, Willie and Reid started to work on the project, but the team was that well chose that everything became less complicated, as the musicians and arrangers have a big heart and very professional behavior to build this master peace that you are enjoying now. After having produced more than 400 pieces along my career, I must say with a big satisfaction this album makes me feel proud and I thank to these two true friends for all their support and dedication that both of them have invested on this project, I feel is going to be such a big success on today's Salsa context. "Salsa Gorda para el bailador". ¡¡¡Long life Salsa!!!

You want salsa gorda don't look any further than this CD!!
Ask yourself are you tired of not getting good hard core salsa to dance too? Tired of "Pop Salsa" and want to really bring a party to a boil ladies and gentleman Orquesta La Mundial brings back the nasty hard core "Salsa Gorda". Typically Salsa Gorda was introduced in the 70's and 80's the sound faded in the 90's with more of Pop Salsa feel. Listen to the songs sang by Mel Martinez on this album. Do yourself a favor buy this CD and buy anything produced by Willie Sotelo he puts the capital "S" in Salsa Gorda.


Just what we need!
Our listeners are delight with La Mundial De La Salsa, this is the type of msic that really keeps the Salsa alive. All 10 songs are 100% bailable. Thanks for such awesome production.

Finally down to earth salsa.......
This is the first time I have listen to Willie Sotelo y "la Mundial" and they have lift me of my feet with their down to earth salsa. It about time that salsa comes back with the traditional sounds. Please keep me up to date on future cd's by this artist. Excellent.

willie sotelo siga pa lante que usted un bravo de verdad!


Can't imagine much better!
Every song is awesome! Better than a greatest hits compilation. Kind of old-shchool but modern feel. Good variety between songs. Rhythms lend themselves to lots of styling and shines throughout the song, not just at the breaks.

There's nothing like the rhythmic brilliance of Puerto Rican salsa to remind us which season is headed our way. Zesty, sunny, sexy, defiant and mischievous, playful, light-hearted but seious about the danceability, Willie Sotelo's exceptionally dynamic salsa band captures the heat like few do. The flash and flair are all here, the intoxicating rhythms driven by piano, fat horns and singers make this spicy album a hit. If you're even the slightest fan of salsa, party music or beat-oriented Latin music, look no further.
