A free Omar Sosa download

Here’s one thing I will give thanks for this year: Calabash Music, the online cornucopia of world grooves.

Calabash is still giving away two FREE MP3s per day (to registered persons). Here’s a nice, jazzy one: “Nuevo Manto,” by the Cuban-born keyboard star Omar Sosa (now living in Spain).

This postmodern cha-cha comes from Sosa’s 2004 CD, “Mulatos.”

To download “Nuevo Manto,” follow this link. To hear it streaming on my Vox blog, click here.

The track has been up for two days at Calabash; it’ll be available for a few days more. So if you want it, grab it.

UBM! You are the solution to the problem huge, multi-billion dollar companies are having with providing the means of discovering new music.

In spite of my iTunes accounts, it has been you, UBM, that turned me on to new music.

Thank you, Bryan. The Internet's the best thing that ever happened to music.
