The Chakachas were a Belgian based group of Latin soul studio musicians. Also known as Les Chakachas or Los Chakachas, they were formed by bandleader Gaston Bogaert, ex-Los Juano Boengs and The Continentals, percussion (conga and tumba), Tito Puente's singer wife Kari Kenton, vocals and maracas, Vic Ingeveldt (a Dutchman from Liege), saxophone, Charlie Lots, trumpet, Christian Marc, piano, Henri Breyre, guitar and backing vocals and Bill Raymond, bass guitar. All were native to Schaarbeek (a district of Brussels), or nearby Charleroi, Willebroek and Liege.(wiki)
From this 1972 self titled album, released in UK by Young Blood International (SYB 3003), i chose two songs, "Stories" and "The Party". Enjoy!!!
