QBA with Carlos Caro Tonight
At Moe's Alley. See you there.
UPDATE: They were on fire! Like a band from Cuba, the years of rehearsing and arranging have resulted in an overwhelming arsenal of gears and bloques. Murray Low has got that crazy Rolando Luna finger action going and I don't think I've heard any Cuban drummer play the snare drum more creatively than Carlos Caro who was completely off the hook tonight. Look for a photo gallery and maybe even a bit of video from Tom. His fancy new still camera actually takes better video than most dedicated videocams. Also, mark down Dec. 11 at Sweet's Ballroom in Oakland. Jesús didn't give too many details, but it sounds like a major event. This could be a great new Bay Area venue.
Entrevista con Juan Kemell
Juan Kemell y La Barriada performed here in Stockholm last Sunday as part of SELAM's African Festival. I took the opportunity to sit down with Juan Kemell before the show and talk about the tour, the last CD "Havananza" and the band's philosophy which is about simply making people happy.
The interview is in WMV format and in Spanish. Click here to watch the interview and stay tuned for the full concert report coming soon...

Born and raised in the working class Havana neighborhood of Pueblo Nuevo, Piñeiro epitomized the urban sonero. He started out as a brilliant rumbero, and he was a well-known akpón or lead vocalist of the santería chant tradition......
