MP3 of The Day: "El Cisne Blanco" off Rumberos de la 8's Self-Titled Debut
Cover art by Charlie Rosario
The record, which was recorded in City of Progress Studios in North Miami is the first analog rumba recording out of Miami in 20 years. Tracks like "Oddié," "Descarga 8," "Ave Maria Morena" and this little gem, titled "El Cisne Blanco," pop with the Rumberos' mastery of Latin percussion and ooze Caribbean soul. The album was recently released digitally, but the record won't drop until the 28th. You definitely want to check this out. And you can also catch them live weekly at their residency at Hoy Como Ayer with Spam Allstars.
