Austin Latin music purveyors El Tule recently teamed up with Beto Martinez–guitarist extraordinaire for Grupo Fantasma and Money Chicha–at his studio Leche House. “Bailando El Tule” is the result, a theme song for a band that hardly sticks to one theme. El Tule blends cumbia, salsa, merengue, and more in its dance-centric music, and the new song is more of a slow burn, fitting the grooves together like dance steps. The simple, exhilarated “whoo!” at the end sums it up perfectly.
El Tule plays a Haiti benefit show on Saturday, December 17 at the Barracuda alongside Money Chicha, Qi Dada from Riders Against The Storm, and more.
