Yellow Fever

I found a compilation of El Salvador's Fiebre Amarilla at a Goodwill in Lancaster. "Pellejo" is definitely the stand out to me, as it is full of weird breaks. Their name translates into "yellow fever" and pellejo means "skin or hide." The Google Image results for pellejo are pretty funny too. Feel free to comment with any other translations or information.

I think someday we’ll all wear the same thing. Because anytime I see a movie or a TV show where there are people from the future or another planet, they’re all wearing the same outfit. Somehow they all decided, “All right, that’s enough. From now on, this is going to be our outfit. One-piece silver jump suit, with a V-stripe on the chest, and boots. That’s it. We’re going to start visiting other planets and we want to look like a team.”

Thank you posting this! My uncle was a member of fiebre amarilla in the 70's! He moved from nicaragua to el salvador to be in the band. This is so so rad! He's the one in the center of the picture posted, with the afro!

p.s- where did you find this picture? I've been searching for images of the band and I can't seem to find any. I would appreciate if you could give me the source! Thanks!
