Super Power, the third album by Rumba de Bodas is an album with frenetic and enthralling rhythms, a soulful horn section of the highest quality, grooves that go from funk James Brown Style to Ska and a constant background of Latin influences that sails from cumbia to son. Despite Rachel Doe’s singing mostly in English, Super Power is an album that is not afraid to cross geographical or temporal boundaries, mixing space synthesisers, gospel choirs and electric guitars in an eclectic symphony of styles and musical genres. The only certainty of this album is that is full of sudden and unexpected changes of direction and the overwhelming charge That is perfectly performed, which at the end reveals their main goal, which is to be appreciated by those who love to go wild and dance their heart out!
