New Album from Verny Varela y La Tropa - La Rumba No Se Acaba - Salsa Dura de Colombia
Música tropical de Cuba y Francia - Rubén Paz y Chéverefusión
LA TIMBA LA TRAIGO YO - Nuevo Disco de Robert Armas y los Conquistadores de la Salsa
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.

4:25 dance teachers you really want this track
Literally translated to "A Little Bit of Everything", this super danceable release showcases Paulito's voice in songs that mix timba with salsa, reggaeton, urban music and latin pop. Timba fans of classic Paulito don't need to worry. The bonus track -a remix of "Admiradora"- is the PERFECT track to teach Cuban rueda (dance).
Alternate cover for Un Poquito de Tó

If you teach Cuban dance styles the bonus track Admiradora REMIX is PERFECT for your classes. It has all the sections of a standard timba song -verse, coro, mambo, despelote- without the vocals so you can actually play it loud while you talk over it and give instructions. Check it out becuase you won;t be disappointed. It is sure to become the "stock" track you will always rely on. In addition, this specific version, the one included in this download, has been enhanced for optimum audio quality.

Geared toward commercial radio, "Un Poquito de Tó" is a combination of Paulito's incredible timba with urban music styles. The album includes: El Punto, a collaboration with rapper Yami Manzano, Cleopatra a collaboration with rapper Michel Elías, Te Boté a collaboration with rapper Roldán Rivero González of ORISHAS, Confío en tí which is straight up salsa romantica and also Pasta Con Tostones, a nod to his Italian fans (fried plantains with's actually pretty good).
