Song of the Day - Conga Tour

Now THIS is what I'm Talkin' About!


New Van Van "Conga Tour"  featuring Mandy Cantero on lead vocals

I've decided to start sharing some of my favorite videos here at Timba.com, not just at Facebook. So let me start with El Tren, La Maquinaria, whatever you want to call them, Juan Formell & Los Van Van are back with an estreno 2012 and I am in love again! This song makes me crazy to hit the dance floor immediately!  It's another song with Mandy Cantero, the newest Van Van, on lead and despite the name it is not a conga. It is timba, baby, timba. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more of my favorite videos!
