Definitely some people in Cuba has listened to Fania.
It's so common in NY mambo and salsa to refer to the rhythm/form used that I can't see how it's notable in this example. Personally I find it interesting to know how songs are categorised.
Irakere - Aguanile Bonko
Chicas de La Habana- Aguanile Bonko
And a bunch of other versions...
Pete El Conde y Johnny Pacheco - La esencia del guaguancó (Tite Curet)
Son Habana - La esencia del guaguancó
I think it's terrible the way so much Cuban music is actually covers of tunes from NY and PR when the Cuban fans just don't seem aware of it.
He, he.... Of course Cuban people know and enjoy music from other countries.
Marifé de Triana - María de la O
Carmen Amaya - La bien pagá
Los Papines - María de la O / La bien pagá
There has been at least one Fania Tribute album done in Cuba just like Fania did a Van van tribute.
Moliendo Café, originally composed in 1958 by Hugo Blanco:
A BUNCH of remakes. My favorite:
Amalia Batista (zarzuela by Rodrigo Prats)
and among many versions:
Necesito Una Amiga
(NG La Banda - Issac Delgado)
Marvin Santiago - Vasos en colores
Tirso Duarte - Vasos de colores
Brazil twist 2
There's a thread devoted to Brazilian tunes redone in salsa: http://salsaforums.com/threads/brazilian-influenced-salsa-music.18056/
There might be another one somewhere else too.
I put the name of this song at the start of the thread, but speaking of Brazilian tunes, here are the videos:
Luiz Vieira - Menino de Braçanã
Ismael Rivera - Mi negrita me espera
Although technically not salsa, I've heard this song by the JuJu Orchestra in a few socials.
It is based on Astor Piazzolla's "Escualo".
Both Cuban artists
Marc Anthony - Vivir mi vida
Azúcar Negra - Vivir Mi Vida
Oops. It seems that the first version of 《Vasos en colores》is this by Camilo Azuquita y Rafael Cortijo:
