Tuesday May 9 2006 - New Songs by La Tremenda
La Tremenda is a timba group based in Stockholm. They have provided us with a couple of songs featuring Lesmer Solenzar (Klímax) on lead vocals. Since I don't have access to our Music section I decided to link them from here. The songs are Lunes La Semana Completa and Morocha Mi Corazón. The story behind Lunes is that bandleader Johan Brolund injured his arm and was not able to continue playing saxophone. When he started playing synth it was like "everything is starting from zero", he says.

Nuevas Conciones por La Tremenda
La Tremenda es un grupo de timba con base en Estocolmo. Nos han dado dos canciones presentando Lesmer Solenzar (Klímax) cantando voz principal. Ya que no tengo aceso a nuestra sección de Música, decidí poner los enlaces aquí. Las canciones son Lunes La Semana Completa y Morocha Mi Corazón. La historia detrás de Lunes es que el lider Johan Brolund herió su brazo y no pudo seguir tocando el saxofón. Cuando empezó a tocar teclado fue como "todo comienza desde zero", nos cuenta.

Tuesday May 2 2006 - Popular! - Charanga Habanera Documentary
Are you tired of seeing Cuban music portrayed as quaint folk music played by old men wearing Panama hats and smoking cigars? Would you like the world to know what is really Popular in Cuba today? Or are you simply a charanguero like me? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you will be as happy as I am to know that Jennifer Paz has completed her long-awaited Charanga Habanera documentary simply titled Popular!

cuban music, musica cubana

The film follows David Calzado and "the boys" from 2003, beginning with the huge success of the Soy Cubano Soy Popular period, to the departure of Yulién and Ebblis "El Boni", through the first appearance of Leo Garrido in 2005. In addition to concert and intimate backstage footage, the documentary takes us to rehearsals in Fanguito, a place of legend to those of us who have never been there. There are interviews with genius bandleader David and many current and previous band members as well as with other figures of Cuban music today, such as Chucho Valdés and Haila Mompie.

When you have seen this movie you will know what it is like to live the life of a Charanguero - such as the contrasts of performing for Cuban workers and touring in Japan - but wherever they go they remain Popular!

As we all impatiently await the release of the documentary, we leave you with a sneak preview in pictures and a synopsis of the documentary. A trailer will be online within a couple of days, and of course we will post the link as soon as we can. Charangueate!
