Soy Lo Que Te Hala

Maykel Blanco & Salsa Mayor CD Released!

Soy Lo Que Te Hala - Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor

If you are a Facebook user you know that the word has been out since Mirco's post yesterday, Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor's latest album, "Soy lo que te hala", has been released at iTunes and the hardcopy is at latinmusicstore and will certainly hit other on-line stores soon. I am a hardcopy fan myself  and decided to wait for the CD to appear at local stores, but after previewing the songs at iTunes, I couldn't resist buying it. I'll pick up the hardcopy later but I just had to have the songs now !

This album is packed with hits! The songs you have probably already heard if your local DJ is up-to-date are "Que tu crees?", "Se acabó el amor", "Pa' cualquiera", "La cara de salir pa' andar" and "Soy lo que te hala". If you caught them on their March tour of Europe or back in Havana you have also heard several other songs from the new album. A full review will be coming shortly. In the meatime here's the short review: great album, dancers will love it, you should buy it.

Track list:

title lead singer
Que Tú Crees? (A La Ñaqui)
Pavel “La Figura”
Se Acabo’ El Amor (Ya Tú No Estás En El Bombo) Yordi Larrazaba

In preparation for the upcoming CD release, they have published the first video single at YouTube, "Esa niña, qué cintura!". Check it out below and catch them on their tour this summer .  And cuida'o ! There is a sort of an updated Marilyn Monroe skirt flying up scene in the video...only with a very short skirt.

Press Release from Musicalia

Revé European Summer Tour Canceled - El Charangón Va pa'l Yuma

You may have noticed that the dates for Elito Revé y Su Charangón in the US conflict with the dates that were previously reported for the Euroepan Summer 2010 Tour. The agency Musicalia has sent out a press release to explain the cancelation and information about the next European Tour.

"The Cuban Agency Musicalia reports that the orchestra Elito Revè y su Charangón  will not make Summer Tour 2010 scheduled for Europe because it canceled the contract for breach, with the company that represented him in that continent. The next tour to Europe was made in the month of October-November 2010, with the launch of his new album De que estamos hablando ".

Our loss is the US fans' gain. But at least we know that the Charangón will be back in Europe this fall following the release of the new album which is hot, hot,hot!
