ENGLISH: Septeto Santiaguero will perform at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing on Tuesday, June 28 at 6:30 PM. A performance venue of this caliber in the United States is long overdue for this group, whose album No Quiero Llanto won a Latin GRAMMY® last year. If I were in New York, I would be there. For complete details and tickets, see the Lincoln Center's event page.
ESPAÑOL : Septeto Santiaguero se presentará en el Midsummer Night Swing del Lincoln Center el martes, 28 de junio a las 6:30 PM. Un lugar de actuación de este calibre en los Estados Unidos es largo atrasado para este grupo, cuyo álbum No Quiero Llanto ganó un GRAMMY Latino® el año pasado. Si yo estuviera en Nueva York, estaría allí. Para obtener todos los detalles y entradas, consulte la página de eventos del Lincoln Center.

Buena Fe Begin US Tour
Tonight @ James L. Knight Center
Tonight Buena Fe , Cuba's most popular trova-fusion band, kicks off their US tour with a concert at the James L. Knight center in Miami. From their humble beginnings as a duo in Guantanamo, Buena Fe has grown to become a mega-group on the island, with a fan base spanning ages 9 to 90 and a faithful international following as well. This year Buena Fe is working to increase their exposure throughout the Americas, and the US tour will include some firsts such as their first concerts in Puerto Rico, Houston and Tampa. Later this year they will tour Argentina and possibly Chile.
Musically Buena Fe mix pop and rock with just about anything they want: changüí, son, rumba, reggae. But what really makes Buena Fe stand out are the lyrics. Descendants of the Nueva Trova movement, they always have a message that is worth listening to whether they deliver it in a ballad or via double entendre in a changüí. Recent collaborations with timba and reggaeton bands include "La Carta" with Alain Daniel, "Esa mujer" with Orquesta Revé, "Cuba isla bella" with Orishas, and Los 4 who recorded a timbaton cover of Buena Fe's first hit "No juegues con mi soledad".
If you are unfamiliar with their music check out their Vevo page: BuenaFeVEVO . I wil just give you a sample of one of my favorites Pi 3,14 - which has now entered the vernacular as a popular refrain that you can hear in "Yo vengo de Cuba" by F Clan and Havana D'Primera.
