 Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. The Chakachas are best remembered for their hit disco single 'Jungle Fever'. The album by the same name is a revelation of Latin funk, with horns playing against groovy rhythms and some fine vocal work. Exiting in every aspect it is a real tasty and nasty combination of sounds. The album is characterized by it's versatile percussion, consisting of maracas, congas and drums, and funky guitar riffs and horns. There is a beautiful version of Earle Hagen's classic standard 'Harlem Nocturne', known for it's groovy bass-line and guitar breaks. 'Jungle Fever' is a classic which should be included in every collection of funk and Latin music. The Belgian based group of The Chakachas were a Latin soul collection of studio musicians. They are also known as Les Chakachas or Los Chakachas. They started in the late 1950s, recording a playful mixture of Latin music, jazz, and European-style exotica.
