Like so many of Issac Delgado's classics, "Usa condón" lived a life of its own in concert and gained many new coros. 

"Tremendo delirio" marked the end of the era of the original La Charanga Habanera, but unlike the breakups of the great rock supergroups, the wellspring of young talent in Havana allowed the principals to form three great new bands, all of which contributed significantly to the history of Timba. Look for our upcoming articles on the new Charanga Habanera, Charanga Forever, and Lozada and González' band, "Dany Lozada y su Timba Cubana".
