About the album: Summer of Cumbia
The idea behind the album Summer of
Cumbia, was for a family (husband, expectant wife, and her
brother) to pass the summer cheaply while having fun by making music
After working their day jobs, the members would get together for dinner at 6pm and then work in the studio writing and recording until 10pm.
On June 1, 2009, the as yet unnamed group met together for the first time to see what would happen. The first song they came up with was "La iguana" Tracking and vocals were done on the first night and overdubs and mixing was completed on the next night.
The group had fun creating La iguana, and decided that they should try another song. That song was "Taco Tuesdays." As they were working on the song, the group felt that they were tapping into something special. The air in the studio was electric and the song practically wrote itself. "Taco Tuesdays" also baptized the members with new names: El Mero Mero, Trixie and El Sabroso.
