SE LLAMA SABROSO (They Call it Tasty) by Zona Franka (a zona franca is a duty-free port) is an exciting introduction of a style called "Changüí con flow", a fusion of traditional rural changüí with rap and other urban Cuban music. As the name of the group implies, various musical styles from around the Americas are also featured. The songs are Cuban classics re-imagined in fresh, clever and innovative new arrangements that far differ from the original versions.
Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

Fifth release from Pedrito Calvo with his band “La Justicia”, “Apurate Bailador! (translated to “hurry up dancer”). Includes Van Van’s hit “Mi Chocolate”.

La nueva producción -la quinta como solista y tercera con Evivdia- de uno de los cantantes de la legendaria orquesta cubana Los Van Van presenta 12 temas que alternan entre inéditos y clásicos como "Mi Chocolate", "A Toda Cuba Le Gusta" o la versión en salsa de un clásico de Juan Manuel Serrat, "Hoy Puede Ser un Gran Día". No podemos dejar pasar la versión de unos de los temas preferidos de nuestro Carlos Gardel "Melodía del Arrabal". Pedrito Calvo nos motiva con este disco sabroso ya sea con su particular voz, su especial carisma o las graciosas letras como "Ay Patricia".
