Otto De Rojas Y Su Orquesta ‎– El tema de Coco (Vinyl 7")

Label: Matasuna Records

Cat No: MSR021

More than two years ago "Matasuna Records" already reissued two songs of the gifted Peruvian piano master "Otto de Rojas" on a 7inch single. "El tema de Coco" is another great track on his 1976 album "Superéxitos Bailables", on which he mixed Latin with Funk, Jazz and Disco. The song was reworked by "Retro Roland Riso", known for his Bossa 70 edits and by label founder "Alex SoulBrigada", who now deliver two different versions of this tune for the dancefloor.

"Otto Raúl de Rojas Guedes" (1941-2008) was a Peruvian musician, composer, arranger, musical director of radio and television broadcasts. He's considered one of the most influential figures in Peruvian music of the 70s.

The musical landscape of Peru, especially in the musical epicentre Lima, was influenced in the 1960s by US Funk, Soul or even psychedelic Rock and merged it with Peruvian Cumbia and traditional Criolla music. The young & unknown "Otto de Rojas" started his musical career in this environment and played in various bands like "Bossa 70" and "Los Hilton's". A commercial breakthrough in his career came in the early 70s when he took over the musical direction of the TV show "Trampolín a la fama" and made a name for himself with his talent as an arranger.
