I am in love with this track after an awesome workshop I did with Adolfo Indacochea this summer and so I had to run up to him and find out the song name! (I have a habit of doing that…only for you guys 😉 ) It is the track used in a performance by Mambo kings Adolfo Indacochea, Eddie Torres and Eddie Torres Jr (check it out here), which is great fun and it’s always a pleasure to see shows that are intergenerational. Tito Puente is often referred to as “The Musical Pope,” “El Rey de los Timbales” (The King of the Timbales) and “The King of Latin Music.” I can’t say I object to the title. This version was recorded as a live performance by Puente in his home country of Puerto Rico. Enjoy the track and the rest of the weekend!
