Timbeando con Gilito

Stockholm in December: Part I

Gilito SELAM is starting off the holiday season with a major salsa party starring Gilito backed by a powerful band featuring Pepe Espinoza, Oldrich González, Evelio Galán, Ezequiel Nuñez, and Carlos Pérez among others. SELAM has also brought in Stockholm's great timba DJs, Soto-Mayor and N'Rike. The concert will take place at Kulturhuset on December 4th, yes on Changó's Day, so be sure to wear something red. Gilito has been busy all year performing with his own group and with Juan De Marcos' Afro-Cuban All Stars, and finally he is making a stop here in Stockholm. What better way to heat up a cold, dark Scandinavian night?

Here is a little taste of what you will get, "Timbeando" from Gilito's album "Al César lo que es del César". See you there!

Havana Heavy Hitters - Vestido De Blanco

Nueva producción timbera reúne estrellas de la música cubana

"Dressed In White" is the new album from an all-star timba project developed by drummer Michael Gerald and brothers Yosvel & Edduar Bernal. Exclusive to LPM & Timba.com, this record delivers exactly what it claims: killer timba from Havana's heaviest players.

While other genres and styles impose themselves on the current market, this HHH project arrives just in time to demonstrate the quality and grandeur of the way popular music was created in Cuba during its stellar days of the 1990s, a time for which many musicians -including myself- share strong feelings of nostalgia. -- Edduar Bernal Pina

Havana Heavy Hitters - Vestido De Blanco

Hoy en el 2010, nuevos géneros y estilos se imponen pero el proyecto Havana Heavy Hitters llega en el momento justo para demostrar al mundo la calidad y grandeza de una forma de hacer música popular en Cuba que por los años 90 tuvo su mayor esplendor y por la que muchos músicos en la actualidad, al igual que Yosvel y Edduar, sienten nostalgia. -- Edduar Bernal Pina

Getting Ready for Calixto!

Books Will Be Out This Week

I've been working around the clock since July when I spent 3 days filming Calixto Oviedo for a new series of books: Beyond Salsa Percussion. 

Many announcements coming in the next few days, but if you want to get yourself in the mood, today's big news is that LPM has finally added Simplemente lo mejor de NG La Banda. The title, for once, is dead-on accurate.

It has all the best masterpieces from the Calixto era including Santa palabra, Échale limón, La bruja, Picadillo de soya, etc. Audio excerpts are available for every track. Enjoy.
