    The song's been posted here, but I've been enjoying the video for Que Sorpresa which came out in February. Finally explains why she gets so upset over a little bit of agua!

    His coming to Antwerp, Belgium, soon! Pupy has a longstandig reputation, to me this is modern Son.

    Yes. Tonight they're in Mallorca. You're lucky if you are able to see one of the concerts. I won't be able to.

    Here's some video from the concert in France on march 4th - but without the guest artists.

    I had a sorpresa of my own. I started to see the video and my daughter sweetly sat on my lap. After about five seconds I realized she had a crappy diaper!

  9. For a second I thought I was listening to the original Charanga Habanera, I heard a Sombrilla "Eh?".
    This is a great song, is Limonta held in the same realm of regard as Formell in Cuba? Azucar Negra always hits the spot for me. I hope one day he'll get some female singers again.
  10. New Bamboleo, for me one of the better modern Bamboleo songs.

    Edit: wow@ the ending, so unexpected haha
    Or Studio version:

    As you probably know Limonta wrote a little for Charanga Habanera before working with Bamboleo. Nube pasajera is one of his songs.

    No one is held in the same regard as Formell :) I think people recognize that Limonta writes great lyrics, but he is not a trained musician and as such, sometimes the trained musicians look down their nose at him. There was major bad blood between him and Lázaro Valdés with the split from Bamboleo. One problem he has had, other than losing the female leads, is that other higher status bands keep poaching him for new singers. Charanga Habanera and Maykel Blanco for example have taken singers from his band. Of course Maykel has also lost a number of singers over the year to other bands or to them just leaving to start their own or leave Cuba or whatever.

    There is a video up with Luna Manzanares singing with Azúcar Negra but the problem with that is that it's a bachata-pop LOL, so I haven't posted the link in this thread.

  12. How elitist!!
    Was the bad blood something to do with song writing credits? Juan Carlos Gonzales cited this as the real reason he split from the original CH.
    One thing that confused me recently is I saw a video of Bamboleo playing En El Pecho, but they were playing the updated Azucar Negra arrangement, (i.e. the Ailyn version not the Haila version). Would there not need to be some communication between Valdes and Limonta for this to happen? I'm not sure how these things work in Cuba...

    Here's the video for reference:

    I'm curious. The singer poaching and shuffling of singers in Cuban bands is a well known thing; but is it just the singers, or is there a similarly high turnover for the musicians as well?

    timberamayor Maestro 'El Diferente' Canales

    I'd say the musicians have a lower turnover but it does happen of course.

    I haven't seen that video before, thanks! I see Duni the trumpet player who used to be with AN is there. the arrangement is definitely closer to AN than the old Bamboleo version. You never know. Sometimes people will hate each other and then years later they're "hermanos" so who knows. I know Limonta pretty well, but we haven't really been in touch much lately and I tend to be to careful to ask "indelicate" questions ;)

    I suspect the break-up was over getting proper credit/respect/pay. Those are the usual reasons.

    OK so not exactly new - but one of the youngest groups - new but Maichel Blanco y Combinación Cubana (little brother of Maykel Blanco - I guess their parents like the sound of the name :) )
