Chichi Prefers a Mitsubishi

Check Out Mirco's Revé Clips

I assume that everyone follows Mirco's TimbaPorSiempre blog, but if you are new to timba, maybe you haven't discovered it yet. Mirco has great contacts for getting the latest music. Of course he has  a couple of clips to give you an idea of what the new Revé CD "De Qué Estamos Hablando" will be like. He also posted the complete track listing for the new CD. So click here if you haven't had a chance to sample the new Revé songs. And let me tell you right now, if you drive a Chevrolet, you don't stand much of a chance with Chichi.

Mi amiga Chichi

Orquesta Revé & Kola Loca

Elito Revé in Stockholm by Karim Ryde Elito Revé y Su Charangón have finished their new album, "De qué estamos hablando" and are promoting the first single. It is a number written and sung by Dagoberto Vazquez called "Mi amiga Chichi" and features Kola Loca as well.

Amazingly the new CD is rumored to surpass their last album "Fresquecito", winner of Best Dance Music CD for 2008 at CubaDisco and Best CD of 2007 at FiestaCubana.net, and I tell you it also won my heart as best CD of the year. So hold on to your hats or whatever you have to hold on to and get ready que La Revé está en la calle otra vez!

And yes, they are still planning a tour of the US at the end of April so stay tuned for the details as they become available.

Contrabando Concert Report

Abriendo Caminos

Contrabando celebrate their new CD with champagneContrabando celebrate the release of "Abriendo Caminos" with champagne

I have finally overcome my technical difficulties and can share with you all the experience of attending the Contrabando release concert for "Abriendo Caminos". It was really a very elaborate event with several different segments culminating in the concert itself. The band was not stingy. They played every song from the new album, with the exception of the bachata version of "Siempre tú". You can already listen to the song "Mentiras" in our Timba.com Radio. I have also included a little live video in the report as well as a post-concert video of the goings-on in the dressing room after the concert. Click here to check it out and get to know the band a little better. Non-Spanish speakers will be happy that I have gone hi-tech and started adding subtitles to the interviews. If you haven't already seen the interview with bandleader "El Paísa" I recommend you take a few minutes to watch it. You will get an idea of what Contraabndo is about. And check out the entire Contrabando section as well.
