Maikel Blanco: directo de la habana, musica cubana!

Posted by on 11 Oct 2011 | Tagged as: Events

Hello Seattle Friends,

The concert on Saturday in NYC was fabulous! We enjoyed every second of it, finally seeing some of our favorite songs performed live. Here is a photo, compliments of Becky who came up from DC.

I wish I could go to the concerts this weekend in B’ham and at Club Sur. Enjoy–it will be great venues for the band.

“…directo del la Habana, musica cubana…”

–The doors will open at 8pm, come early to get a spot and get warmed up with all the other outta-towners while Antonio DJs. Drinks and appetizers available. Between 9 and 10pm, Karlos y Estilo Cubano from Vancouver will perform a rueda, and Antonio of Rumba Northwest and Chen Lizra of Latidos Productions will perform a rumba.

Many of you (David, Thomas and others) have had trouble embedding videos even when following instructions posted here. I finally figured out what the problem was and have fixed it.

Sorry it took me so long…… but it should work now.

Top Ten Songs in Cuba – Planet Timba

My favorite section…3:37 right after the Reggaeton when the backup vocals come in and the triplet (three over two) at 3:43, see if you can hear it, sweet…
