As Hispanic Heritage Month rolls on, let me point you to a FREE MP3 from Telmary, a rapper and “jazz poet” from Cuba.
Telmary Diaz, now living in Toronto, built an international reputation behind her 2006 album “A Diario.”
But the track I want you to hear is off a CD called “Fantasma de la Libertad” by Raphael Sebbag, a French-Moroccan DJ and producer based in Tokyo.
Click here to stream “Alegria Africana” on my Vox blog. (Then tell me I’m not throwin’ down with these Latin tracks!)
If you have a MySpace account, you can download “Alegria Africana” by following this link to Telmary’s MySpace page.
UPDATE (09/26/08): Aw shoot. Looks like MySpace has a brand new system in place for music streaming. No more free downloads, it looks like. Sorry about that.
