Encanto Tropical 16 (WSR)


Ready for replay is Episode 16 -- see the link at bottom of this page (23 tracks, 2hr 1min).

Encanto Tropical 14 (World Salsa Radio - DJ Angel Figueroa) with guest Fabrizio Zoro

Episode 16 deviates from the usual program structure (with four spotlights) and instead focuses on the theme of Latin music in Japan -- on the playlist are several songs by Japanese artists from past episodes of Encanto Tropical as well as a few I have not played before. This includes songs by foreign artists based in Japan.

As a resident of Japan for more than twenty years, it has been interesting to follow the local Latin music scene and collect music, both rare and popular, which I am happy to share with listeners.

The aim of this special feature is to give exposure to Japanese artists who are generally unknown internationally. There is certainly a lot of material to choose from, and my selection in no way is intended to be authoritative. In fact, I think it is important to attempt at least one more feature (Part 2) to cover several artists and bands not included in this episode (due to the time restriction). Stay tuned.
