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.

Underground reggae classic. Great music and lyrics from these rising reggae stars!

See the * Los Goyos - SIEMPRE * video here:

A real gem. Highlights include "Amor en PR" (Love in PR), "Bosques de Cemento" (Cement Forests) and a hidden bonus track (#13). If you like reggae you won't believe that this band is still unknown. The lyrics are deep, political and positive. Put your player on 'repeat' and let it play this record over and over again. Pa' los boricuas it's an absolute 'must have'. O-F-I-C-I-A-L!

Para esta nueva producción Los Goyos contaron con la participación de la sección de vientos de la exitosa banda León De Judá. Fluir integra, además, una influencia más rockera que se une a la fusión que les distingue: un estilo ecléctico que mezcla el reggae roots jamaiquino con sonidos caribeños, unidos al vibrante ritmo del drum n' bass y las programaciones electrónicas. Ragamuffin, dancehall y hip hop son otros elementos que aderezan los arreglos musicales en Fluir.

Willie y Pedro comparten la autoría de la letras del catálogo de canciones de Los Goyos, con colaboraciones de Onix y Alexis. En las mismas, reflejan sus preocupaciones en torno al país y al mundo, dando cabida también a reflexiones instrospectivas. Para Willie, Fluir contiene unas letras más adultas y revolucionarias. Fluir mezcla el sonido retro de los ’70 con las tendencias contemporáneas de producción, para un sonido orgánico y moderno a su vez.

Bosques de Cemento - Cement Forests
They are seeding (growing) forests of cement
In the places where I used to be
And I ask myself if in the future
There will plces where my kids can play

They are confusing the minds of our leaders Oh God
That with money in hand, nothing is better
And that prosperity is not in construction
And what a coincidence that it rhymes with destruction

The leaders are breaking tomorrow's schemes
Thinking of the money that they can steal
Then it is true when as a boy they taught me
"Be careful becuase money can really talk"

And prosperity lies the preservation of the natural
In the life, in dreams, in things moral
And what is wrong with living in the shadows?
Protected by pressures that rob us of our peace?

Let them not take away our peace
Let them not take away our peace, no
Together we can fight
And preserve (conserve)
Maybe in the future
Selfish ideas will die
And only for a moment
In this moment, I ask myself

Where will they play?
How will they have fun?
