Album Notes
A young man in modern-day long dreadlocks, sometimes tied back in a bandana, frame his head; he likes to wear earrings, a necklace and bracelets, and his western-style clothes. His appereance is markedly different from that of the old generation of Cuban musicians; his exterior has nothing in common with the soneros of the golden age. But this does not mean that this member of the younger generation has no respect for the traditions of his home country, quite the reverse, in fact, in musical terms Mayito continues the series of his ancestors with a great sense of history. On this album you will hear that this musician, educated at the Escuela Nacional de la Musica and the Escuela Superior de Arte, has a confident command of all the known Cuban stylistic genres, both the old and new. He presents new modern developments on a stable foundation of tradition and solid skill, thus finding his way to his own sound. Mayito the singer is given solid support by upwardly striving studio musicians and friends, including Samuel Formell (son of Juan Formell and a member of Los Van Van). With the superb backing band, an outstanding wind section and percussion driving the works, Mayito has realized his musical vision of skillfully balancing older and modern elements. Time and again salsa, timba, soul, rock and jazz are linked to make modern Latin music which sets its listeners moving. A total of ten pieces are good to liven up the most lagging of parties and get everyone on the dance floor, with rhythms to move on. This joie de vivre is irresistibly catching.

2006 Grammy Nominee
