Latin Parang / Parang Jam by Colleen Grant / Sandra Hamilton

Soundway presents two rare, Parang dancefloor cuts from early 1980s Trinidad & Tobago.

Parang is a style of folk music that originated from Venezuelan and Colombian immigrants that came to the Caribbean, and evolved to include elements of Latin music, disco and soca – as is evident in this release. Although traditionally used to be played during the festive season in Trinidad and Tobago, parang music continues to heat up dancefloors all year round.

These two in-demand tracks were originally released on the local RH Productions label in Trinidad & Tobago. Fully restored, remastered and licensed – both are now being released officially for the first time on digital, and re-pressed for the first time on vinyl.
