Hablando con Lachy & Heikel

Lachy "very happy" & "El Chico Sexy"

For those of you who haven't kept yourselves up-to-date on the comings and goings in La Charanga Habanera, it's time for a few introductions before El Ciclón de La Habana hits the US. The band now has a five-singer line-up. The veterans are Aned Mota "El Charanguero Gozador" and Dantes Cardosa "El Ricky Ricón". The newest singers have already been with the band for over a year, but since the band hasn't been to El Yuma since 2001 they may still be new faces to you.

La Charanga HabaneraJunior, Heikel, Dantes, Lachy & Aned

Last Saturday, November 28th I took the opportunity to talk with Lachy and Heikel so they could introduce themselves to the readers of Timba.com. Junior was on the move most of the time so I didn't get a chance to talk to him, but you should know him from the very popular song "Mentirosa".

Entrevista con Aned Mota

El Charanguero Gozador

Aned Mota - Charanga HabaneraOn November 28th I saw La Charanga Habanera for the first time in three years. As always I had a great time. This was a major event put on by Cuba Nocturna with an opening show of rumba by Grupo Raices, reggaeton by Robertico "El Galán" and one of the newest acts in the hiphop/reggaeton scene La Nueva Union with Frank Belicer and Yarién Oviedo. I will get back to this in the full concert report. But let me begin with some of the pre-show interviews with the charangueros, starting with Aned Mota. The interveiw is in Spanish and in video format. Click here to go to the interview.

El Noro Joins Los Que Son Son

El NoroLike me you have probably been anxiously awaiting the news of where El Noro would turn up after his departure from El Trabuco. Well word from Havana is that he is the latest member of Los Que Son Son. I know that for some time Pupy has been wanting to add a 4th singer to the line-up and El Noro was the lucky guy who got the spot.

Pupy y Los Que Son Son played this weekend at the Encuentro De Bailadores in Havana with the four-man front line: Michel Pérez, Norberto Gómez, Rusdel Nuñez and El Noro. I don't know yet what songs El Noro is singing but I am looking forward to seeing this combination of what is one of the strongest line-ups of the young generation of singers in Havana today.

And speaking of hot young singers in Havana, I just saw the Charanga Habanera last night for the first time since 2006 and I had a great time! Report with video coming very soon so stay tuned...

Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor

Europe 2010

Maykel Blanco Fans of Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor have probably heard about the new video clip for "Pa' cualquiera" the new mega-hit sung by Yordi Larrazaba. Unfortunately problems with the internet connection have prevented it from being uploaded to the Salsa Mayor hompage. Hopefully it will be up soon. If not, keep an eye on muchoswing.com. It may just show up there one of these days.

For the curious, after Pepitín's departure from the band his songs have been distributed among Yordi, Pavel and Yasser. I guess we'll soon see who is singing what because...I know that fans are eagerly awaiting the next tour and I'm happy to report that Los Mayores will be back in Europe for a spring tour in March/April 2010. Of course we will update their tours page as the confirmed dates become available so stay tuned...
