Charanga Forever - Somos Charangueros, 2006 timba on Envidia label
Pure and simple timba: The shouted, rapped coros are there, telling their stories of the street, always with humor and cynicism. The band`s (ex-David Calzado`s Charanga Habanera) a huge machine, with slapping percussion driving on the ever-erratic bass figures, the constant montunos and the horn section. This is the musical glory of the `80s in Cuba, increasingly rare and valuable. There`s nothing like this, some of the last great live dance music in the world, orchestral, precise, intelligent. Michel Maza shows up as a lead singer on three tracks, and Tirso Duarte, the great pianist, shows up singing on one track. This stuff is overwhelming; it`s so detailed, so complicated. And so hard; listen to the first few bars after the break on "Se Cree Que se Las Sabe Todas," with a bluesy montuno thrusting through the music, to hear the intensity of hard driving swing.
