Exciting times for longtime latin eight-piece El Tule! This Saturday not only marks the release of their fifth album Bailando, it also commemorates fifteen years since El Tule first assembled. In the four albums and countless live shows undertaken in the past decade and a half, Bailando showcases El Tule’s cumbia and afro-cuban sound as honestly as possible – through analog tape. You can catch El Tule performing Saturday night at Hotel Vegas alongside Plan Sonidero and DJ Megabass. Ease back into the work week in the best way possible – with a self-referential song appearing halfway through Bailando‘s six tracks – “Bailando El Tule”. They’re not difficult instructions – dance with El Tule!
