Pedrito Martínez Review from Gotham
We've just launched the Gotham Report, written by Ian Stewart of Timba Bass Corner and NYC Bulletin. The first entry is Ian's review of the CD Release Party Concert of the Pedrito Martínez Group.
And don't forget: Revé Tomorrow in Santa Cruz!
Revé in Santa Cruz Tuesday!!
Tom Ehrlich's Café Cócomo Gallery
Someobody pinch me - I can't believe Elito Revé y su Charangón is playing 5 minutes from my house for $20 for the whole night! That didn't stop me from driving to SF to see their Saturday show at Cócomo. Click here for Tom Ehrlich's gallery.
Rueda con Ritmo performed at Cócomo and will repeat their choreographed rueda of De qué estamos hablando on Tuesday. The new tresero, pianista and singer were all great, but the highlight of the show for me was the amazing güirero, Maykel Díaz - wow - he plays his watermelon-sized güiro with a relentless groove and sound, and he catches everything. See you there!

Today marks the 9th anniversary of Maykel Blanco y Su Salsa Mayor also known as La Nueva Máquina de Cuba. Here in Europe they burst onto the scene with their first CD release "Recoge y Vete" and have remained at the top of the timba charts ever since having released five albums including their best-selling album to date, "A toda máquina", last December. Through planning and hard work they are today one of the most popular young timba bands both inside and outside Cuba. If you are in Lima, don't miss them October 31st @ Songo - Rumba Club. Congratulations to Maykel and the whole piquete ! Below is an interview I did with Maykel after the concert in Copenhagen during their European Summer Tour, including some concert footage.
