Tony Succar: Unity – The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson
Genre: Latin, Salsa, Tropical Pop
Three years of work, recording at several studios(e.g. Miami, Orlando), with more than 80 professional musicians, in tribute to the King Of Pop: Michael Jackson, who died in 2009.
Tony Succar, born in 1986 in Lima, Peru, is an US-american music producer and indie record label owner who develops this “Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson“. Including great musicians and singers, e.g. Tito Nieves and La India, this awesome album reinterprets Michael Jackson’s 14 greatest hits, as “I Want You Back”, from the Jackson 5, into an amazing mix of tropical pop and latin music. The appeal of this album is to show all the world how beautiful Big Band Orchestration, Latin and Caribbean sound can be, while you’re still remaining true to Michael’s artistic integrity. Maybe so, the latin music audience could increase, if you’re start listening to latin music in familiar textes. Another aim is to unite people, create peace through music and dissolve barriers between all countries on the world. With “Unity” would show us, that all people love music and dance, just as Michael envisioned.
