“San Lazaro is a world-class Latin band. They play with considerable panache, and impressive enthusiasm and exuberance.” Rhythms magazine.
(Swingo is..) "a tough, grooving piece of Afro-Latin funk from the debut album by Melbourne up and coming group of urban
mestizos who - in typical Australian fashion - hail from Chilean, Spanish, Greek, Irish, Mauritian, Iranian and Indian
backgrounds" Brent Clough, The Daily Planet. ABC National Radio
“This is the best Latin album I have heard this year. It's killer. This album often plays before we go out then when we get
home, and has been the soundtrack to many wicked nights.”
