Discodelic present its second release in a series of exclusive 45rpm records. From the caribbean coast of Costa Rica, the province of Limón, the town of Cahuita, we present you the incredible BOCARACÁ!
Bocaracá is without a doubt a gem from the caribbean Central America, a spectacular concoction of psychedelia with afro latin rythms. Created Isidor Asch and Luis Jákamo, two restless limonenses who have been on the path of discovering their latin musical roots since childhood, while also experimenting with soul and Rock in their own compositions. Together and on their own, they have written a big chunk of the history of Soul in Costa Rica with their subsequent outstanding groups: Marfil, Grupo Stop and Manantial.
The reissue of this historic material was originally recorded between 1973 and 1974 in Audio Centro, a recording facility in San José. It’s a priceless and impotant document, a window to what was happening with music in the largely abandoned and forgotten province of Limón, where a musical revolution was cooking in the early 70’s, and where Bocaracá where the cornerstone.
This limited edition it part of a project that has been in the making for several years, a labour of love and respect for the music of this singular band, four “maes” who were known as “the only hippies in Limón” in their hometown.
Get to know the full story of Bocaracá in the special liner notes prepared with love for all of you, featuring band anecdotes and photos, included with the release.
