Maykel Blanco y Su Salsa Mayor are performing tonight at Havanna in Berlin. this is the seventh concert of their extensive summer tour of Europe, which consists of 28 concerts. Check the remaining dates to find a concert near you.
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/.

Mezcla On Tour in the United States
Mezcla is an historically-important group from Cuba that has opened musical doors both there and in the United States. As this is being typed (June 22), it is on the last day of a three-day run at Jazz Aspen Snowmass; they then play Oakland on June 26 and Chicago on June 29. Bill Tilford interviewed Pablo this week, and you can read the transcript here. Our Mezcla section also has a discography and videos.
Tom Ehrlich's Danay Suárez Gallery
Ritmos de Mayimbe!
The rest of Tom's gallery on Cuban hip-hop sensation Danay Suárez can be viewed here.
Meanwhile, Mayimbe, after playing brilliantly to a massive crowd on June 1 in their US debut is coming back to the Bay Area's Club Cócomo on June 29. You can get $15 tickets with no service charge on Rueda con Ritmo's site. RcR's Ryan Mead and Sidney Weaverling are offering three classes on the afternoon of the Mayimbe show, including a study of Mayimbe's style called "Ritmos de Mayimbe". They always have brilliant insights on timba, rhythm and dance, several of which contributed greatly to the brand new Tirso Duarte edition of Beyond Salsa Piano, which should be out within 24 hours.
