TEGO CALDERON’S, “THE UNDERDOG/EL SUBESTIMADO” ALBUM DROPPING AUG. 29
Lyrically, he has forged a revolutionary flow inspired by his authentic street roots, creating a social chronicle that openly addresses such issues as racism, poverty, and class oppression.
Combining hip ’60s slang with modern urban language, and set apart by his unmistakable Afro hairstyle and captivating stage presence, Calderón’s appeal transcends economic, social, and age barriers, as he creates music with truly universal appeal.
The diversity of musical styles that Tego brings together on "THE UNDERDOG/EL SUBESTIMADO" is reflected in the wide array of musical instruments on the album.
Avoiding the overuse of computer-generated tracks, Calderón brings to his palate the music of percussion and brass to create a vivid soundscape that recalls the classic rhythms of the legendary salsa greats.
The first single from the album is "Los Maté," produced by DJ Nesty & Naldo.
Audio streams for "Los Mate"
Catch Tego on August 19th at Randalls Island where he will be performing live at AmsterJam.
