THIS WEEK: See our Concerts, Events and Reviews page for what's shaping up to be an exciting week. Heading into the next weekend, there is a Fiesta Boricua on Division, the Chicago Jazz Festival has some Latin Jazz acts on the program, and there are several bands in the clubs.
Nabori had a fine night at the Cubby Bear for Live Salsa Sundays; we are a little tardy with the photos due to an unusually busy week. However, we do have a review of their new CD, De Nuevo En El Solar, which you can read here. It will be available at the usual suspects (CD Baby, Amazon, I-Tunes) in mid-September, but they are also selling copies at their performances. All the best to Nabori with the new release!
Also available now is our review of Orquesta el Macabeo's new release, Lluvia Con Sol, which you can read here. Many of you heard this killer band from Puerto Rico perform in Chicago last year, and their latest is excellent. It would be nice to see them back here eventually.

TONIGHT (Sunday, August 18) Area Salsa powerhouse and everyone's favorite backing band, Nabori, has a new CD out, De Nuevo en el Solar, and you can taste it on their website here. We have a lot of stuff already in the review queue right now but will try to get to this one in the near future. In the meantime, you can hear them live tonight at the Cubby Bear (Live Salsa Sundays) at 9pm and 11pm

Area Salsa powerhouse and everyone's favorite backing band, Nabori, has a new CD out, De Nuevo en el Solar, and you can taste it on their website here. We have a lot of stuff already in the review queue right now but will try to get to this one in the near future. Their brass section was the wrecking crew behind some of the visiting stars at last weekend's Festival Cubano, and these guys can blow, and we mean that in a good way.
Check out our Events & Reviews page for some of who is playing this week. (If you aren't on the calendar and should be, reminder, we aren't telepaths here, we just seem like we are...)

We didn't pack a camera, but Novalima was a lot of fun. It has a sort of jam band vibe to it. We didn't realize how many beautiful Peruvian women were hanging out in Chicago until we checked this out either. Otherwise, we are still recuperating from an excellent Festival Cubano, which you can read about in our Sin Clave blog.

See our Report From Chicago section for the weekend's Festival Cubano, but the night before that starts, there is also
Novalima at the Old Town School of Folk Music
Thursday, August 1 at 7:30pm
Peru has fallen in love with la musica Cubana and has also produced its own genre of Afro-Peruvian music as well as various types of fusion. Novalimastarts from an Afro-Peruvian base and mixes in everything else with a result that is potent and worth checking out.

This week's doings and news are so cool (including Hector Silveira tonight and Hilario Duran Friday) that we are going to send you straight to our Sin Clave No Hay Na' blog for details.
In other news, our favorite working Salsa band in Puerto Rico, Orquesta El Macabeo, has released an excellent new album, Lluvia con Sol. We'll do a full review in the near future, in the meantime, here is one of their official promo videos for the new recording (a second one is coming soon).
