VIDEO: DJ Demolador drops ‘El Malule’ just in time for Carnival| 18 January, 2013
Carnaval in Barranquilla, Colombia, has a an official theme, logo and t-shirt each year. But the epic celebration also brings hit music. But the songs aren’t chosen by the carnival committee. Instead they are christened by the port city’s people as you’ll hear them blaring on buses, in restaurants and in all the parties leading up to carnival, of course.
These catchy songs then become mainstays in all the carnival-related parades, concerts and parties.
Barranquilla’s German Padilla, better known as DJ Demolador, began collecting champeta CDs at age 10. Today, he’s one of the city’s popular producers and club DJs.
His latest track, El Malule, features champeta artist Erwin Espelucao and reggaeton/urban artist, Georgy Man. It is sure to land on “Carnaval 2013” CDs sold all over Barranquilla streets during this annual party.
This champeta will make you dance, and it includes just the right infusion of folkoric flutes to give it that traditional Carnaval feel. Enjoy!
