Dream weapons present: SOUTHWARDS C60

Spring is here! Southward, Sunward, Starward, and Skyward* were four norwegian-owned caribbean cruise ships that all started operating out of PortMiami in the late 60's-early 70’s. Southwards in this context means any musical tradition originating somewhere south of Miami.

Plenty of sunshine, dance and love - but with the latter comes heartbreak and desperation + there’s a couple of protest songs.


1 Rosita Fernandez - Mi Fracaso
2 John Buddy Williams - Alma Llanera
3 Atis Indepandan - Dodinin
4 Roscoe Weathers - Penny Whistle Montuna
5 Beth Carvalho - O Porto
6 Julie London - Yours (Quiereme Mucho)
7 Djalma Ferreira - Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Voce
8 Clarence Curvan Orchestra - Clair de Lune
9 Juan Gelman & Juan Cedrón - Siete
10 Leonor González Mina - La Luna de Piliza

11 Irma Vila - Traicionera
12 John Williams - The Long Goodbye - Mariachi
13 Les Grands Ballets de Tahiti - Toriri E Mai Ne
14 Xavier Cugat - Minsang Lamang
15 Unknown - Aura Waltz
16 Lydia Mendoza - No Sabes Comprender
17 Anibal Sampayo y Los Costeros - A Líber Arce
18 Rafaél Deyón - Y No Me Dejes Corazón
19 Grand Curucaye String Orchestra of Trinidad - Vieje Croix: Pecao Salao
20 Solar Plexus - Children of Bahia (edit)


*so this might be the beginning of a tetralogy.
