16.09.16 : Son y Afro? Siempre Si!

íHola a los todos!

When thinking of ideas for today’s blog post, my dearest readers and followers, I was facing a dilemma…

At the start of the week, a friend of mine, who’s a great DJ and aficionado of Cuban music, DJ Gil Cubanito, introduced me to a wonderful album of traditional Cuban music by El Piqueton de Felix Rondon, a band of marvelous musician from all over the oriente province of Cuba, led by Tres player and violinist Felix Rondon.


So I thought, earlier this week, “here’s a wonderful album to share on my blog!”, and it definitely is!
As inserting the whole album into a post is not realistic, I’ll leave this section of today’s review with one of my favorites, Yemaya

So, that would be it… normally!
But as the week went on, new and exiting videos came up.

The 2nd piece of news I would like to share is an extension of sorts to a previously reviewed song, which is also a favorite of mine, but this time in the vein of Timba – Havana de Primera’s wonderful Siempre Si !

What’s new here, you might be asking yourselves… the song now has a beautiful video clip!
Making great video clips for great songs seems to be all the heat in La Habana these days…

Lat but not least, the official youtube channel of Orquesta Reve has been quite active lately, with a good deal of recordings from live concert of their recent tour getting uploaded.
The one that caught my eye the most is a clip from their concert together with Yoruba Andabo (which will be on tour in Europe in November, BTW) – I was lucky to be present in a similar event on a different occasion back in 2013, and I can sure tell you that it’s amazing!

Definitely worth watching!

That’s “all” I got for today… íDisfruten!
