Good day dear blog followers, readers and listeners!
Today we shall be enjoying a nice 7 minute long (!) Timba composition from “la epoca del oro”, the 1990s, when Timba was being created by literally everybody in Cuba…
Todays groovy composition is by Andy Gola y Cole Cole, from their 1996 album “live in Havana”.
The band started in 1990 as a general “Latin music” band playing everything from merengue to Guaguanco, and even some non Latin music.
But as the “Timba craze” hit Habana, Andy and co. of 14 talents got on the band wagon, and since then released 4 albums (live in Habana, en Colombia, a bailar.com and the recent Traigo lo que Te gusta), and performed all over the world, in countries such as Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Ecuador, Brasil, Canada and Italy, to name a few.
The composition for today is from their 1st album, and is quite smooth and groovy.
