2. Video online: Insight into our Salsa school
This is also a form of feedback! Lonneke v. M. from the Netherlands did not only write us how she experienced Salsa dancing in Havana. She also sent us a little video, which we placed right beneath her report on our page of feedbacks. So, if you want to have a brief insight, this way please:


3. Blas Rivera live from Madrid - TODAY!!!
The tango jazz embrace! You have the opportunity to assist today at 10p.m. local time at a concert from Blas Rivera, live streaming from Madrid:


4. Don Omar and “King of Kings” - the CD, finally!
“King of Kings” is the accurate title of the CD demonstrating the return of, at the same time the title clearly states, who he is: the undisputed King of Reggaeton. We believe that this is CD is clearly one of the best Reggaeton productions on the market. In our estimation, Reggaeton will stay a hot topic on the European market in the years to follow. Statistics from the USA, where the rhythm is already mainstream and where Don Omar had already sold 400.000 copies of his CD even before the release date, proove this opinion!

Don Omar - King of Kings

5. Just came in: CDs Manolito and Sur Caribe (Cuba)

5.1 Manolito Simonet y su Trabuco have finally released their new CD, which was anticipated eagerly by their fans. “Hablando en Serio” is first class Timba, Manolito style. The first beats already made me feel like being in Havana. This is a must for fans of Cuban music:


5.2 Sur Caribe is the most popular band in Cuba at the moment, and their CD “Credenciales” is a wonderfully danceable Timba recording. Similar to the Manolito CD, it was really hard for me to chose my favourite track. This is great fun:

Sur Caribe
