The album will also be released in separate editions, SALSA PLUS! on April 23 and SWING! on April 30. Only digital for now, but physical copies are expected to be produced at a later date.
“SALSWING! as an album has different purposes. One, to present the Roberto Delgado Orchestra as an outfit capable of expanding its original Panamanian roots to cover other musical genres,” says Blades. “Another, to present my interest in exploring other vocal directions and thus eliminate the stereotype that affirms that we are conditioned to only exist artistically within specific boundaries, according to our nationality. Perhaps the most important point is to exemplify that, as artists, we address our music to the world, not just to a specific segment of its population.”
