…."Chacon, who has been called ”the voice of Timba” use his smooth energetic voice to tie together a variety of musical styles on his second Cd”

“Salsa timba” is a superfine effort that creates some great music and also is a major step forward for Osvaldo and further cements his position as one of the premier members of the London Latin posse.
Dave Hucker (The Beat Magazine,

“Cuban singer-composer-arranger, Chacon, project a textured, dynamic vocal, presence on his second Cd. Filling the shoes of Los Van Van might be difficult, but Chacon stands poised as the Timba heir apparent”

Osvaldo Chacon new CD, Salsa Timba, continues the soaring climb for this vocalist….His Timba, experimentation whit timba rap, and genuine salsa styles are featured on Bimbom,…….”

“Whith his outstanding soulful timbre he proves himself a vocal multi-talent easily switching over from singing to rapping. Whit Salsa Afrocubana, Osvaldo Chacon had delivered a critically acclaimed album, but Salsa Timba will cause bursts of applause.”
Dagmar Golle (World Music Net,
January 03) Germany

…. “Osvaldo changes his hats, from husky crooner to hard-belting sonero with aplomb and genuine emotion…every song builds up a very convincing of steam as the timba beats”…
