Thanks for the coments guys, here's one more...

Performed live on TV for a morning program, this is from mid 2005 with the band 'Armandito Y Su Mecanica'
For some reason uploading to youtube plays it slighly out of sync with some minor skips also... But I assure you its 100% live and unedited. I will try to get a better copy off the DVD onto my pc.
We played the short version of an original composition titled TIRA TIRA. Where it ends in the clip, it takes off again into masocote/breakdown timba style, however we were limited in time so could only play the song in its short format.

Found by clicking here:

Hey nice work on the Son Veneno gig! Delman showed me much more of that vid at his place a few weeks back. Good stuff!

Nice work Abakua.

Hey wasn't there a post on here yesterday with the youtube video embedded? I was wondering if that was possible. Did the post get deleted for some reason?

On another note, I found Maya Deren's documentary, DIVINE HORSEMEN available for streaming or download. Filmed in Haiti in the late 40's, early 50's. I know nothing about Haitian music, so I can't vouch for it's accuracy (I would be interested to hear comments), but it sure looks cool. I wish she had gone to Cuba also!

Yeh I accidently deleted it when I went to quote Freddy (I hit delete instead of quote)

Cheers, glad you enjoyed my vids.

Hi guys, I found another short clip on my pc from some time ago, so I chucked it up on youtube just now...

This was a gig I done earlier this year with former band Veneno (now based in UK) (Conga solo part 2 into guitar solo)

Here is a short 3min promo clip a former project I was a part of, a 2hr show called Noche Cubana/Cuban Nights

My other 2 vids incase you missed em and wanna check em out, they are here:

Abakua, thanks!

I found some things on my PC either,

First some Latin Jazz in Havana;

Next some some music produced by Anga Diaz who just died recently;

And I found a new Anga just waiting to be discovered...

Salem Maleikum, mpangi.

Interesting to watch Eddie Montalvo playing with just 2 fingers of his right hand, now I'm curious as to what happened to his other fingers, but it doesn't hinder his playing or sound....He has always been a favorite player of mine, that's Louie Bauzo on Bongo and my buddy "Nicky" on timbs....for u young players check out the "groove" on this video .."eso es AFINQUE!"...."JC" Johnny Conga....
