CUBAN SALSA MUSIC
Salsa Dance Music & Cuban Rhythms
Cuban Salsa. For me, there is nothing that beats the driving rhythms,
and new brash sound of Timba. Cuba has much to offer in the way of
standout bands, from Van Van, to Bamboleo, to Paulito! I can't recommend these
guys enough . . . This is about as far away as you can get from Salsa Romantica,
and it combines many aspects of music, from a strong afro-Cuban base, including
, funk, hip hop, and, yes, even techno. You can't go wrong with ANY of
these choices for great dance music! Remember, this just scratches the
surface (and hopefully gets you started) with what's out there!
Also, check out the BEST page yet on Cuban Salsa, to learn more about Timba,
listen to music, get the history and sociological underpinnings, it's a great
site at: http://www.sastom.demon.nl
Salsa De Cuba Brand New Album, Just released, has a very good mix of a variety of artists!
Cuban Salsa Jam
Haven't Heard it yet, but looks to be very good (from the list of artists). I pre-ordered it!
Ya No Hace Falta
My Current Favorite cuban band (Bamboleo)! Try not to dance to #2 . . . These guys are GREAT and they play in the Bay Area every now and then. This is their latest album . . . A must have!
Yo No Me Parezco A Nadie Bamboleo's Earlier Effort! Absolutely fantastic album. I've loved this group from the start. Another MUST have!
Te Gusto O Te Caigo Bien The First Bamboleo effort. While I like the other two quite a bit more, from this album you can really see how their music has evolved and changed!
Grandes Exitos Charanga Habanera! Can't go wrong with this.
The Best Of Los Van Van The Best of is a good place to start, but you won't want to stop there!
Jugando Con Candela
Adalberto Alvarez, One of my ABSOLUTE favorites! I saw the band at Slims and had a fantastic time . . . Definitely in my TOP 3!
De Buena Fe Manolin - Something different. Listen to it and see if you like it.
Paulito F.G. Y Su Elite
Para Mi Gente
Maonlin's Bigger hit album (at least for US sales).
