I finally found the name of the salsa band who played in Casa de la Musica the night I first took my teenage daughter to Galiano in Havana. Yes, naughty me, I passed her for 18 when she’s only 14 and introduced her to a world of loud timba music, the best dancing in Havana, the raunchy dance moves of Bustamente and Yoandy who were grinding away with their latest dance pupils (who we met weeks later in Oxford), the Cuban hottie who tried to get my daughter to fall for him…and to this amazing timba band Maikel Blanco Y Su Salsa Mayor, who had us mesmerized.
Their hit son “Esto Esta” (This Is…) is my FAVOURITE salsa song to dance to. I hear this and I have to dance…
Here’s the video of “Esto Esta”:
