Conjunto Yagüarimú, originally from Matanzas, Cuba.
A very hip funky, jazz band which spent the early 1990's as the back up band for 'Santiago Alfonso' in the Havana Hotel Libre, Tropicana and the Capri hotels. They achieved much success and began international tours to countries such as Austria, Spain and Mexico in the cities of Cancun and Aguascalientes.

An obscure "Live" recording by them recorded live on a Sony Walkman by 'Rob Holland' in Cuba 1985.
Six tunes. Sorry, no cover art as it's a live set.
Unfortunately it was recorded a bit 'hot' but still enjoyable and a killer set!!!
On the "live" recording it's easy to hear how this band can do battle with Irakere any day!
Great baterista & percussionist playing both tumbadoras and batá. Swinging electric guitar.
The "live" set kicks ass, even though the sound quality isn't great.

"De una manera espantosa" 1981
Conj. Yagüarimú
Comp: Arsenio Rodríguez
(The announcer thinks it's Luis "Lilí" Martínez Griñán)
