Good day dear blog readers, listeners, followers y todos los amantes de la musica Cubana!
Today we shall see that you don’t even have to be Cuban to make good Cuban music, but you do have to have the passion for it deep inside, as we can see quite well with the members of the band Son Como Son, based in Albuquerque, in the US state of new Mexico…
This truly pan-american group, made of Cubans, Borriqua, Mexicanos and Americans has been playing all over the USA since the late 1990s, and has established itself as a leading ensemble in the north american continent.
The music of this 9 member band is sits somewhere between the beauty and elegance of Son and the drive, groove and high energy of Timba, resulting in a unique yet very Cuban “rolling” sound, that seems to keep going with no end in sight!
I fell in love with some of their songs from “Aqui no falta mas Nadie”, their first albums released in the year 2000, but their later 2 albums were no disappointment as well!
So for today, we have a composition from their 1st album, with which some of us more veteran Cuban dance students might be familiar from the earlier volumes of the wonderful instructional tapes \ DVDs of the “Salsa a la Cubana” series produced by Eric Freeman…
So, here is our song for today;
And don’t forget – ¡sigue disfrutando la musica Cubana!
