LA TIMBA LA TRAIGO YO - Nuevo Disco + Gira Europa de Robert Armas y los Conquistadores de la Salsa

Best Charanga Habanera Group

EXTRA QUESTION: WHICH CHARANGA HABANERA DO YOU PREFER?

We asked people to specify which time period for "Best Band". Some people did, but not enough, so we put all the votes together for each band, regardless of the time period. However, Timba fans love to debate the relative merits of the various versions of Charanga Habanera, so for fun, we've added this extra bonus category to the final vote.

1. 1997- Michel Maza, Sombrilla, Danny Lozada
(Tremendo Delirio)
(main arrangers: David Calzado and Juan Carlos González)

2. 1998-2000 - Tirso Duarte, Aned Mota, Dantes Cardosa, Noel Díaz
