I came across a tasty cut by the old-school Afro-Cuban band Estrellas de Chocolate. I pass along the FREE MP3, though I can’t tell you much about it.
All I know is that conga player Félix “Chocolate” Alfonso started the group 50 years ago. Before that, he played with Arsenio Rodríguez, a hugely influential Cuban bandleader.
