Havana Son direct from Dublin?

Yes, you read it right. Havana Son, under the direction of Conor Guilfoyle, hails from Dublin Ireland and here we present one of their tunes "La Mulata Cubana." One of the most interesting things about the Net is your ability to make friends in far away places. This is certainly the case with Conor and I. I always thought that I had a fairly large collection of Latin music...Conor's dwarfs mine. Conor is a consummate musician and has played with many veteran Jazz cats. He recently recorded with John Abercrombie. His love of Latin music however is what fascinated me and the fact that he took up bongo and formed this band is proof of that love. The lead singer is Evelio Galan. He will be fronting the Cuban All Stars on their US tour beginning in February 2009. So here it is, Cuban son straight from the Emerald Isle. Erin Go Bragh!
