MegaMix 34

ZIN MegaMix 34 is full of covers, none of which is better (or significantly worse) than a corresponding original. Among them, ¿Por qué les Mientes? by Tito “El Bambino” El Patrón, Mambo Yo Yo by Ricardo Lemvo and Ain’t Nobody by Hawk Wolinski — or, rather, a cover of Alex Wilson’s salsa version of Ain’t Nobody. The warm-up (?) track The Reckoning, featuring the keyboard sounds last popular in the 1980s, is far too long (by Zumba standards) and repetitive (even by Zumba standards). If you want to incorporate some Latin electronica in your Zumba routine, you’d better check the quality stuff from Novalima or Bajofondo. I am not a big fan of reggaeton, but Rykitona by K.L.C. Clave Cubana is good.
