cuban music, musica cubanaIf you've been wondering what to do this weekend, Friday, August 14th is the final concert of Mayito Rivera and Grupo Danson before Mayito returns to Cuba. It will take place at Søpavillonen in Copenhagen. By great fortune I will actually be able to attend! The band will perform a mix of songs from Mayito's solo project, his hits with Los Van Van and Grupo Danson's hits such as "Mi música". Ernesto Manuitt is also with Danson as their lead singer. Click here for information about the concert. And just on the off chance that a few of you don't read Danish...Tickets are 180 DKK at the door. The venue opens at 9pm with several DJs to get you warmed up. At 11pm the concert will begin so don't arrive late!

DJ Salsani has already posted video and photos of the Aarhus concert, which was a great success by all accounts. Check PlanetTimba for the concert report and links to the videos. You will notice that Gilito was sitting in for Ernesto in Aarhus. Salsani will also be DJing in Copenhagen so we will get the chance to meet in person!

Tuesday August 4 2009 - Adalberto Àlvarez at Tyrol
Sorry about the delay but I have finally posted my concert report from the July 24th Stockholm concert. It was well attended and many of the fans present are our own local timba musicians, with representatives from Calle Real, La Tremenda and La Liga Habanera. DJ Maquina provided an excellent mix of son and timba before and after the show. Click here for the full report.
