Alfonso Álvarez & Maykel Blanco
I caught up with the band at Søpavillonen in Copenhagen on June 21st where I took the opportunity to interview director Maykel Blanco. I have uploaded the video of the interview mixed with clips from the concert. Although the interview is in Spanish, non-Spanish speakers will hopefully enjoy the concert clips. I will upload an English transcription of the interview and a full concert report later. You can follow Maykel Blanco y Su Salsa Mayor at their redesigned website in Spanish, English, Italian and French: www.maykelblanco.com/.
