La Charanga De Cuba / recorded in France 1962-'63

1. Lazaro Y Su Microfono

4. Invitation Au Bembe 

Early 1960's 'La Charanga De Cuba' that recorded two 7" inch EP's on the French Barclay label.
Four songs on each record.

The record "Dance Party A La Havane" has a tasty version of "Lazaro Y Su Microfono"
which starts with a rubato piano intro followed by 8 bars of Danzón... then right into it.
The second record, "La Charanga De Cuba" all four songs are done in 6/8 time. (Bembé)

Both EP's obscure, rare and out of print.
Ripped from vinyl @ 320
