In the previous post, I talked about Kalunga, formerly of Klimax and Manolito y su Trabuco, who is now singing with Orquesta Buena Vista. I mentioned, in the update at the bottom, an album of Arsenio Rodriguez songs he'd recorded with trumpeter Mirabal, and mentioned my favourite, Me boté de guaño. Well of course, it's on youtube. And so I've embedded it for your listening and viewing pleasure. It's a little smoother than Arsenio's version - it's like the difference between Parliament and Luther. But it's still great.
Below is another Rodriguez song, Pa Morón no vuelvo más. On the album, Kalunga duets with Tirso Duarte. Both of these are great dance songs. Arsenio really knew how to get hips shaking.
Quite psyched for this tour now. Details are in the post below.
