I’m not one to take much interest in contests and competitions of any sort, but those at the festival can really be interesting at times, and are nice to watch, occasionally.
So, the song presented today was the final’s song for Sunday’s Son Competition, and rightfully so;
Long before “salsa” was first use as an advertisement term for any and every thing “Latino”, the ingenious Ignacio Pineiro composed the now classic Echale Salsita, back in 1933…
So, here is our composition for today – an interpretation of the classic by the modern ensemble Sierra Maestra, which plays traditional and contemporary Cuban muisc, together with the talented Vocalist Celeste Mendoza.
As you probably know, the group has recently released a new album, “Origen”.
But this wonderful composition comes from their previous album, “Llego lo Que te Gusta”, and is more on the traditional side, as compared to the hardcore Timba which characterizes most of the group’s compositions.
As mentioned above, the band will be performing at the 9th Guaguanco Festival at Lloret de Mar, Spain, next week, and yours truly will be there to enjoy it (and much more!).
Today I’m glad to present yet another amazing new album, in which all but 1 of the composition are great both for listening and playing at your favorite dance venue, party, event etc. ;
Today’s song is from the new album by Pupy y Los Que Son Son, called “Pasandola Bien“, just as the title track (which, in my modest opinion, is the best Timba track released so far since mid 2017…) .
The marvelous Timba for us to enjoy today is called “Este Ano”, and if “Pasandola Bien” is #1, this one is #2, not being too far behind…
So, here it is.
¡Sigue disfrutando la musica Cubana!
