Pais Tropical 2

Did you survive Blue Monday and the cold, dark days of January so far? Here’s part 2 of Pais Tropical to cheer things up a little bit! I always thought that Santa Esmeralda was a Spanish guy, with a guitar in a box like Antonio Banderas in the movie ‘Desperado’. But it turns out to be a French team of producers with no Spanish blood in their veins at all. I like their single though. Director Quentin Tarantino used ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ for his movie Kill Bill 1. Leroy Gomez is the singer of the track. He used to have some problems with his zipper which can be seen in a few YouTube videos… Gomez is a born American and worked as a session saxophone player and vocalist, with many artists, including Elton John, José Felicano, Patrick Juvet, Gilbert Becaud, Claude Francois and Laurent Voulzy. Enjoy!
