Parang is a popular folk music originating from Trinidad and Tobago: can best be described as Christmas folk songs sung in Spanish. Some say it came out from Spanish colonists’ influence on local culture. Some say Venezuelan immigrants brought it. “Latin Parang” is its perfect disco declination from 1980: beautifully arranged by Leston Paul, who later gained massive success with “Hot Hot Hot” by Arrow.
