Uruguayan bassist/composer Beto Satragni, also known as a member of Raices and Spinetta Jade. A figure who has left a contribution on the Argentinian scene as well as on his Uruguayan connections as represented by Hugo Fattoruso,Ruben Rada. This solo album was released in 1991 on the Melopea label led by Litto Nebbia, and features a flowing Candombe-fusion/jazz-rock sound with members Ruben Rada, Ricardo Nolé, Quintino Cinalli. In particular, "Milonga Canaria" has a lustrous, smooth groove that creates melancholy, "Lund Drum Candombé" is a killer intersection of steelpan and candombé rhythms, "Para Mí Abuelo Jacinto", a technical, fast-moving mellow groove with his own vocal, last track "Funk Ecológico" starts with the bouncy rhythm work that gives the song its funk name and builds into a spectacular session, are amazing. One of best Melopea piece.

RaicesやSpinetta Jadeのメンバーとしても知られるウルグアイ人ベーシスト/コンポーザーBeto Satragni。Hugo Fattoruso,Ruben Radaに代表されるウルグアイ人脈だけではなくアルゼンチンのシーンでも大きな足跡を残した人物。本作はLitto Nebbia率いるMelopeaよりリリースした91年のソロアルバム。Ruben Rada,Ricardo Nolé,Quintino Cinalliのメンバーと共に流れるような演奏のカンドンベ・フュージョン/ジャズ・ロックサウンドを披露しています。特に艶のある滑らかなグルーヴが哀愁を生む”Milonga Canaria”、スティールパンとカンドンベのリズムが交差するキラーな”Lund Drum Candombé”、テクニカルで疾走感のあるメローグルーブに自身のヴォーカルを乗せた”Para Mí Abuelo Jacinto”、ファンクと名のついた通りの跳ねるようなリズムワークから壮絶なセッションへ展開していくラストの”Funk Ecológico”などどれも捻りの効いた楽曲群。Melopeaが生んだ最高傑作の一つ。
