Only a couple of days left in Hispanic Heritage Month. So let me point you to a FREE MP3 from the London-based band Ska Cubano, which fuses Jamaican and Cuban (and Trinidadian and Colombian) flavors.
The front men are British ska singer Natty Bo and Cuban mambo singer Beny Billy. Can you detect a Kid Creole-ish sense of whimsy in the photo above?
Click here to hear “Ay Caramba!” on my Vox blog. This track is from Ska Cubano’s 2006 CD of the same title.
To download it, follow this link to Calabash. You need to be registered at that world-music site in order to cop.
