Today in Cuban music: Albita

Que manera de esperar un disco, que manera. Albita released her new Big Band album that pays homage to pre-revolution Cuban music – and it sounds as if Machito got a face lift by a really, really great plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills.

Homenaje a Benny Moré and Mis Congas are a master’s class in the genre, while Pais Tropical and Las Cumbias celebrates Brazilian and Colombian styles (respectively) melted together with clave and cincerro.

Download her new album on Google Play, Amazon or iTunes. Watch her perform Se Te Cayó el Tabaco.
