Out of the depths of a nation’s sociopolitical struggle comes one of the most mature albums Puerto Rican music has seen this year.The salsa group known as Orquesta Macabeo unleashes their 4th studio album, La Maldición del Timbal, an eight track bombshell that proves how far their spirited blend of punk rock attitude and afro-boricua beats have come along.
This is much more than their usual musical mayhem. For example, Macabeo now goes deep into the Puerto Rican diaspora’s feeling of nostalgic desperation, with tracks such as Crucero, where they explain how they long to arrive “to a free port”, a clear allusion to the commonwealth’s controversial political limbo. More humanist maturity: on the track Armonía, they finally find a way to approach how love can lie to people, something they tried to do on past albums, but couldn’t quite nail. This time, they sigh, “it’s about living with the lie of living in harmony.”
