New Tirso Duarte Release (with La Mecánica Loca)
Currently #1 on Radio Timba ( http://timba.com.radio ) is a new, auto-biographical track entitled "Lucharé". If you listen, Tirso Duarte tells you...
"Sé que muchos se preguntan que me ha pasado, que si me he vuelto loco, que si estoy acabado, que si todavía estoy cantando y con quien ..... (I know many are wondering what happened to me, if I went crazy, if I'm finished, if I'm still singing and with who...)"
Well the answers are all laid out in this new release "Tirso Duarte y la Mecánica Loca" (Agorila).
Also from France and making the rounds on YouTube is a project from trumpeter / band-leader Alexander Batte called "Cuban Monsters". Based in Paris, their first single "La Rumba La Pongo Yo" features some excellent bass playing and mambos on this blend of traditional son / salsa that leads into a heavy timba coro-pregón. Enjoy!
Alain with Havana d'Primera!
It took a while but I finally got both halves of Alain playing bass with Havana d'Primera at their historic US debut. Check out at about 4:12 (and many other places!) after the video switches to the narrower iPhone clip. To me, the way Alain's is laying down the bomba is truly what timba is all about. The audio is not the greatest, but use your imagination - it was truly insane!
