A free Estrellas de Chocolate download

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.

Click here to hear “Ritmo de Mi Son” on my Vox blog. To download it, click the title below.

The album “Conjunto Estrellas de Chocolate” was just digitally reissued.

Thanks for the dl, UBM.

And thanks for the Coverville link in your sidebar! I downloaded three "Prince Cover Story" podcasts. They were all really good.

UBM, I'm SO lovin' it! I've also downloaded the James Brown, Michael Jackson, George Michael and Blondie Cover stories.
