24.05.13 : Adalberto Alvarez y Su Son – La Cuenta y La Rueda

Good day folks!
Today I present you a song from the new album of the great Adalberto Alvarez.

If you want to get to know that artist more, refer to my previous post on Adalberto:


The new album, “Respeto Pa’ Los Mayores” is a masterpiece, just like all of his other albums.
Adalberto’s music is unique – it combines Cuban Son with modern influences to create a very variable set of Timba tracks, using Son, Rumba, and many other rhythms such as mambo, cha cha, cumbia, and many more.

The album itself is quite interesting; it got a self cover – a new, longer, more hard hitting, version of “Somos Latinos”; the romantic “Nadie Te Va Querer Como Yo”; the folkloric “Los Caminos Del Ifa”; Preparate Pa’ Lo Que Traigo” has a collection of Cuban stars working together; “Con Un Amor Se Borra Otro Amor” is a slow Son Montuno, which is a cover of Arsenio Rodriguez…

Thus, as always, Adalberto delivers an interesting mix of great songs from several genres, tempos and feelings, creating the masterpiece of this album.

“La Cuenta y La Rueda” can be described as a typical Adalberto piece, being a modern, energetic Son composition, which is still true to its origins.
