Osvaldo Chacón Live
Te gusto o te caigo bien
Thank YouTube for making it possible for us to share in great musical moments like this performance of the classic "Te gusto o te caigo bien" by Osvaldo Chacón ! This was the title track from Bamboleo's first CD, and it is a prefect example of what timba is all about. Chacón keeps it just as fresh today as it was in 1996. The video was filmed with a percussion-eye view from right behind the bassist, so it's a special treat for rhythm section fans. I hope he can set up a European tour one of these days so I can catch him live! Or maybe I'll be making a 2013 timba trip to London...Enjoy!

Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor
8 Year Anniversary
Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor filming video clip for "Bembé"
On October 10, 2004, Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor had their very first performance at Casa de la Música Galiano. Their debut album, "Recoge y vete", released in 2006 made the band an overnight success on the international timba scene. In the summer of 2007 the Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor did their first European tour and it was a resounding success with audiences going wild. By the time the band released its second studio album, "Anda y pégate", in 2008, even the hard-to-please Havana audience was convinced that this band was here to stay. They commemorate their eight years with another concert at Casa de la Música Galiano soon. It was scheduled for October 13th, but for reasons beyond their control this concert has been cancelled. Check their Facebook page to see when the new date will be for the anniversaryy celebration.
To date Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor have released three studio CD, one live CD and a live DVD. They are on the verge of releasing their fourth studio CD this fall, having just returned to Havana from an intense three-week stay in Lima. Here is a little video look at then and now.
