Soundway presents two rare, Parang dancefloor cuts from early 1980s Trinidad & Tobago.

Parang is a style of folk music that originated from Venezuelan and Colombian immigrants that came to the Caribbean, and evolved to include elements of Latin music, disco and soca - as is evident in this release. Although traditionally used to be played during the festive season in Trinidad and Tobago, parang music continues to heat up dancefloors all year round.

These two in-demand tracks were originally released on the local RH Productions label in Trinidad & Tobago. Fully restored, remastered and licensed - both are now being released officially for the first time on digital, and re-pressed for the first time on vinyl.

Since its inception in 2002, independent label Soundway Records has unearthed coveted musical gems from far-flung corners of the world, with foundations that are rooted in meticulously sourced reissues.

No matter where each Soundway release touches down, the imprint’s passion for carefully shining a light on culturally significant genres and scenes remains unwavering.
