Kitschy latino stock music used by Polsat and Turner EMEA
« on: July 16, 2019, 09:13:04 AM »
I have a problem, since I can't find after two or three years the title of the kitschy latino stock music that was used by Polsat and Turner in EMEA region.

Polsat used this music for intro/outro of "Apetyt na miłość" cooking game show (which lasted from November 2001 till 2002) and the "Idol" III edition casting promo below (at 16:42):


Later, Turner EMEA used this song at least twice - once on a "Gerald McBoing-Boing" contest promo on Boomerang France in ca. 2008 and on the 2010 Cartoon Carnival promo on Cartoon Network Pan-Euro/Africa (see below):


For a few years I've been looking for this cue in various European production music libraries. Although the mystery track sounded a bit Frenchy, I've skimmed through all pre-November 2001 CD albums from Koka Media (incl. some of the 23 missing early KOK albums), Kosinus (incl. KOS 01, 09-10, 24, 50) Cezame, Telemusic and Encore Merci's Music Shop available on the Internet and couldn't find it. I heavily doubt this track came from ex-Zomba music libraries (Bruton, Chappell, Firstcom, Galerie) due to the labels not being officially distributed in Poland until mid-2002 (excl. Connect which was until then distributed in Poland by Koch Music).

I'll be thankful for any help.

That's not library, but a commercial track;
"Soul Bossa Nova" by Quincy Jones.

Thank you very much. No wonder why my longtime searches through production music libraries and assumptions for this track (especially due to "Soul Bossa Nova" being instrumental) frequently failed. :)
