FRONT PAGE - PRIMERA PLANA
Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor
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...
Danny Lozada & Septeto Nacional Thanksgiving Shows
Yoshi's Oakland & San Francisco to Feature Cuban Music
Wednesday, November 25th 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Cuban Music in the Bay Area
Danny Lozada 8 and 10 pm shows at Yoshi's Oakland November 25, are a dream come true for timba fans hungry for the fast, intricate music he composes and performs. This is his first Bay Area appearance since 2007. Danny arrives Sunday night, 11/22, for a guest appearance at Jelly’s with Fito Reinoso.
Then Wednesday, 11/25, he’ll light up Yoshi’s Oakland with two shows. Danny’s performance and band leading abilities are amazing and seeing him at this world-famous venue – with an open dance floor and the best sound system anywhere – will be extraordinary.
His 11-piece band of great timba musicians will begin full force at 8 pm, and by the 10 pm show there may be some surprises.
Hearings this week in Washington, D.C. on lifting the embargo, along with sold out Septeto Nacional shows on the East Coast – have added to the buzz across the U.S. that Cuban music is back full force. Support these internationally recognized musicians and our Bay Area musicians as well.
Both shows are expected to sell out - advance ticket purchase is recommended (click here to buy).
Yosvany Terry Fotos
Tom has posted two new galleries from Yosvany's recent Bay Area Tour of the Museum of the African Diaspora and Yerba Buena Gardens.
There's also a possibility that the family patriarch Eladio "Poncho" Terry, of Maravillas de Florida fame, may be travelling north for Yunior's wedding, and that we might get a Terry family reunion concert. Keep your fingers crossed!
HAS THE NEW TIMBA WAVE BEGUN?
Are The Rumors True?
Ah hello out there? Reportedly Los Van Van has confirmed that they are playing in the next Playboy Jazz Festival! And these 2 flyers for upcoming Diakara and Pupy y los que Son Son shows at S.O.B.s (in New York City) have surfaced. What is going on? As far as we know Pupy is in Italy during that time. Let's hope that there is a coming wave of TIMBA concerts.
Please help us figure out if any of this is true or just BS. Click here to follow our forum thread on the coming wave of Cuban music. Bring those bands over already people.
