It has been almost ten years ago that this project was first recorded in La Habana, Cuba in 2000.A musical tribute to the Beatles with superb arrangements, the first recording to have been made in Cuba sung completely in English by Cuban musicians. Recorded at the Sono Caribe studios in Havana, which was originally the "CMQ" studios.
Every month Cuban LP's and recordings are added to the blog. Which include particular "styles" and "forms" of (playing & singing) "Cuban" music that unfortunately have become, or are on their way to becoming lost art forms. As well as related materiel which may not be "directly" from Cuba.
Mostly LP's that are either long out of print and-or obscure and music from "my own personal collection".
Occasionally some Brasilian things will be added that are hard to find, even on the other great Brasilian blogs, many that are listed in my Blog links. And maybe some things that have nothing to do with Cuban or Brasilian music.
It takes time to do all this, scanning the covers, resizing and uploading, often changing & correcting the info in each MP3 so it shows up right after you download, then see the info in a media player.
Have fun!
