Monday October 6 2008 - Leonel Limonta y Team Cuba Nueva Generación
A video is in production and will be released very soon for Leonel Limonta's new song Así somos. If you haven't heard the song yet, it is dedicated to the victims of hurricane Gustav and Ike. It is a message of optimism, solidarity and thanks to the many countries and organizations that have stepped in to help the Cuban people in the recovery process. The song is interpreted by young musicians that Limonta has named "Team Cuba Nueva Generación".

Sunday October 5 2008 - What's up with Mayito?
Mayito Rivera of Los Van Van seems to be taking some time for solo tours. He was just recently in Peru performing by himself, and now I see that Billy Bryans has announced that Mayito will be performing in Montreal on October 24 and 25th. What's up with that?
