Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The leader of one of the region’s most unique and popular musical acts has recorded and released some new music.

Derrell Syria, of the group “Conga Se Menne”, joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike this week to talk about the new tunes and the band’s upcoming performances.

Syria explained that the songs had been gathering for a while for the new Conga release, and he decided to record them at his home studio.

He said while they originally served as demos for the band’s next studio project, the recordings turned out well enough that he wanted to get them out to the public as soon as possible.

The new CD, entitled “Side By Each”, has a stack of tunes in the familiar style of cleverly mixing reggae musical styles with lyrics telling some classic “Finlander-oriented” tales of saunas, hunting camp and stuck pickup trucks.

Syria said the CD is available at all Conga Se Menne shows and the next one is this Wednesday at the Ore Dock Brewing Company for the group,  “Save the Wild U.P.”
