In late September, Panteon Rococo released their latest single, "El Último Ska" which "embodies the Mexican group's new and surprising nuances to the contemporary music market"! It came out just in time for Panteon's Day of the Dead event at Hollywood Cemetery on October 27!
For those that are not familiar with Panteon Rococo's career, it is a 9 member group that started in 1995. They are most known for mixing genres like reggae, ska, punk, salsa, mariachi, rock and mestizo-music amongst others. This internationally known band has also been known for their energetic live performances, their songs whose themes range from love to politics, and creativity! With nine albums under their belt, there is no doubt that they have built a name for themselves.
"El Último Ska", which has been recently released (and attached below) is the latest single for Panteon Rococo. "El Último Ska is a song produced by Mexican musician and composer, Jorge "Chiquis" Amaro, (Fobia, Cuca, Jot Dog, La Lupita, Natalia Lafourcade, Maná, Moenia) who has long been involved with the band (Ejército de Paz, Arréglame el Alma, 2010). "Chiquis" in the production and Dr. Shenka in the composition have made El Último Ska a detailed and well-achieved work maintaining the personality of the group."
The official video for the song was released on Youtube less than a day ago! The song is so catchy that it has me dancing as I write this! It has all the best elements of the Panteon essence and ska. The lyrics are so catchy as well, including the chanting of: "Quiero que vengas y me digas que me amas y me quieres, aunque no sea verdad. Quiero que me mientas al oido mientras bailas tú conmigo el último ska",including verses in Arab in French! The song overall is a delicious and irresistible melody. I want to dance the last ska with somebody too!
Check it out and dance along!
