Manolín Photos, Part II
by Tom Ehrlich
Here's Part II of Tom's Manolín photos. On drums was the electrifying Ángel "Pututi II" Arce from the original band that took Havana by storm in the 90s. Also from that band was trumpeter "El Niche" Romero, now a Bay Area resident, joined by Roberto Morris (ex-Sur Caribe).
Buena Fe in Miami
The Concert Report

It has been nearly a week since the big concert by Buena Fe February 22nd at Miami-Dade County Auditorium, and I have now posted my concert report which I was able to complete thanks to the cooperation of friend and fellow Buena Fe fan Líen Álvarez and Javier Otero of Blue Night Entertainment . Since we had such a build-up to the Karl Marx concerts, I start this report with a bit of a summary of the events n Miami beginning with the arrival of Israel and Yoel on February 18th and including their television appearences prior to the concert. There is also a short interview with Javier Otero as well as a playlist of songs from the concert. Click here to read the concert report.

Elito Revé y su Charangón in Europe
Tour Begins March 8
Timba fans, La Aplanadora de Cuba will be rolling through Europe again in just about ten days! They are touring for three weeks and will be in Italy, France, Spain and Germany. Click here to find a concert near you. In my opinion, El Charangón is the most hardcore timba band today! Check out Susel and tell me if I'm right. Todo lo que sube tiene que caer!
Susel sings "No debo explicarte nada" from the upcoming new release.
Maykel Blanco is also in Europe again continuing his solo promotional tour for the new CD "A toda máquina" in preperation for the summer tour with the entire band. He has the CD wth him on the tour so take some cash and get yourself a copy. I bet he'll even autograph it for you. The dates and locations of where you can meet Maykel are below.
