Rhythm Staircase – Popolar (Remix)

First Listen: Rhythm Staircase – Popolar (Justin Imperiale Remix) (Cabana)

Uh Uh… Could it be that we’ve got a spelling mistake on the title of this song? Of course, the first idea coming to mind as far as “Popolar” is concerned would be “Popular”. And it probably is.
Going further though, I thought it might be Spanish, but it’s the same as in English. Then I looked as other Latin languages such as Portuguese and Romanian with no more success at the end. And I couldn’t neither figure about the origins of the lyrics. As a matter of fact, I’m not even sure if they’re in Italian…

The overall flow lets think of some African dialect with an undeniable Latino/Caribbean feel. In the tradition of groups such as Kwanzaa Posse back in the 90’s although in a different vein. With Cabana label head Justin Imperiale turning it into an atmospheric Afro jazzy gem…
