I think I like this version even more!
I heard this song just the other day, and I can’t stop listening to it. It makes me think of the slow-paced hot humid days in Havana spent sipping a mojito (who am kidding – I never sip a mojito!), trying to sort out the conflicting sounds of at least 5 sources of music no matter where you are and taking in the organised chaos of the locals going about their day.
Do you like it?
For those of you who have been attending classes recently you would have heard us playing this song pretty regularly – it is Pip and Nick’s current favourite! We love the build up then the explosion of brass, and then it just keeps pushing along.
What do you think?
Pupy y los que son son : Mi Timba “Cerra” encapsulates a style of Cuban Salsa called “timba”. This style of salsa has a jazz flavour, with the drum kit as part of the percussion lineup. “Pupy” was the keyboard player for the famous “Los Van Van” and if you like them, this album will not disappoint. Blending the charanga feel of strings, full vocal corros, with more modern sounds this finely crafted album has a great balance of pumping dance-floor power and relaxed lean-against-the bar listening.
