25.05.18 : El Nino y La Verdad – La Princesa de Cayo Hueso

Good day dear blog readers, followers and listeners!

Today I’m glad to share some great news;
Emilito Frias, fondly known as “el nino”, and his band (El Nino y La Verdad) have just released a wonderful new album called “De Vuelta al Barrio”, full of some great Timba tracks in the band’s usual style, and even one montuno-cha composition.

So, here is one of my favorites from the album, called “La Princesa de Cayo Hueso”.

¡Disfruta la Musica Cubana!

11.05.18 : Azucar Negra – Identidad

Good day dear blog readers, followers and listeners!

Did you ever come across somebody that seemed like they are trying to be someone else? losing their own unique way, instead of being who they are…? Today we have a nice Timba composition by Azucar Negra dealing with the issue of identity.

This hard hitting Timba came out as a part of the 2009 album “Exceso de Equipaje”, and has a clear message – “tienes que ser como tu, no tienes que ser como yo”.
Stay just the way you are, unique and different, being the best version of yourself;
Holds true for us as dancers and in general.

So, here is the song;
¡Disfruta la musica Cubana!

04.05.18 : Maykel Blanco – El Negocio

Good day dear readers, listeners and blog followers!

Hungry for some sweets?
Maykel Blanco provides some great Timba full of the good stuff, directly from his wonderful 2016 album, “Que No Me Quiten la Fe“, sprinkling some (metaphoric) sugar on the dance floor 🙂

So, not a lot to say today, as this dance floor speaks quite well for itself…

¡Disfruta la musica Cubana!
