Gitkin - Canción del Rey

If you believe the story, Brian Gitkin's uncle was a travelling guitar salesman. He would travel the world selling fake Gibson guitars to immigrants to the US so that when they got there they'd be able to make a living playing music. Somehow the spirit of those guitars has been combined in the the nephew, who now makes music that's equal parts surf, cumbia and Ethiopian jazz.

We're not even going to pretend to believe any of that. Instead here's Canción del Rey, which allegedly has a strong Peruvian influence, and sounds for all the world like a drunken marching interpretation of It Don't Mean A Thing. It's from the 2018 album 5 Star Motel.
