Los Maracaibos

Los Maracaibos – Magic Bimbo

A devotion to disco spirituality is one of the central purposes of life of each of us. My personal awakening took shape during 1974 at a very tender age after hearing Bimbo Jet’s seminal El Bimbo.

The success of the French track, written By Claude Morgan and produced by Lauren Rossi, immediately launched the production of countless cover versions worldwide and importantly, gave birth to inspired soundalikes such as Viva America by Banzaii featuring Les Glodettes and Ninas by Los Bomberos. Still, as a whole, the Bimbo Jet school of disco is a largely unheard body of work. This one by Los Maracaibos is a good example of the more obscure titles and is an absolutely essential collectors item.
