"Vivencias en Clave Cubana" is the debut solo album of Cuban cuatro master Kiki Valera, a member of the Familia Valera Miranda, a century-old group and one of the most important purveyors of the Son Cubana. While completely dedicated to the performance of traditional Cuban music, Valera was exposed to Pat Metheny, Wes Montgomery and Chick Corea through cassette tapes while in school and those jazz inspirations elevate the quality of his cuatro solos in subtle and beautiful ways. Joined here by childhood friend, reknowned Cuban vocalist Coco Freeman, Valera and his exciting ensemble pair 12 original songs with beautiful instrumental work in ways that will make you dance, laugh, and possibly shed a tear. Cuba's traditional music has a history of constant evolution from its very beginnings. With "Vivencias en Clave Cubana," Kiki Valera continues in that spirit.
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.

LPM Artists are featured on Lifetime Network TV movie 'Little Girl Lost'
Read the whole article here.

The premier of "Little Girl Lost - The Delimar Vera Story" was held on Thursday, August 7th at the swanky Director's Guild of America (DGA) Theater located at 7920 Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, California. Directed by Paul Kaufman for the Lifetime Movie Network, the music of several LPM artists was featured throughout the film. Little Girl Lost is the true story of a woman, Luz Cuevas, who believed her infant daughter had perished in a fire, only to find her 6 years later living with another family.

DGA Theater - Premier of Little Girl Lost

Yours truly (Michael P. Lazarus) was the source music consultant and I placed a total of ten (10) tracks for the film. Little Girl Lost, set in Philadelphia and starring what is clearly a family with strong Puertorican heritage, features music from LPM artists like Braily Ramos, PR based salsero Rigoberto Rodrígiez, Spain based rapper Alberto GV, trumpeter Marina Garza, Cuban tresero Heriberto "Tito" González, Issac's Delgado's current bassist Yorgis Goiricelaya and TIMBA.com's own Kevin Moore with Orquesta Gitano. The songs are heard during festive party scenes and in the background as radio tracks. Check out our tropical music licensing compilations , Vol-1 & Vol-2, for more info. Interestingly enough the main star, Judy Reyes (cast as Luz Cuevas), is from the Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo).

This movie was a real tear-jerker. Everyone thinks Luz is going bonkers but she persists against all odds. Her insistence gets a local politian, House of Representatives Angel Cruz, involve and he orders the DNA test that proves Delimar is in fact, Delimar. When Luz finally hugs Delimar after those 6 years go by you could hear everything totally still and feel people were holding hands in the theater. Its a chick-flick with real teeth. A great surprise was meeting the real LUZ and DELIMAR -who attended the screening with their family from Philadelphia!
