Tirso Duarte in Colombia
Speaking of Charangueros, Tirso Duarte will begin his first tour of Colombia with a concert in Santander de Quilichao on December 24th, a great way to celebrate Christmas Eve.! Tirso & Proyecto K Libre will have 6 concerts in Colombia during the holiday season, culminating in a New Year's Day concert in Robles. Check Tirso's tour page for the complete list of concerts. And thanks to salsaproducciones for posting information about the tour in the Timba.com Forum.
Meanwhile in Havana Tirso is performing at Café Cantante today in a special concert with Pachito Alonso y Sus Kini Kini and Manolito y Su Trabuco. It breaks my heart to miss it!

Beyond Salsa Piano - First Releases!
It's so much more fun to write them than to proofread them ....
In any case, the eBook and audio files for Volume 1 can now be purchased at LPM. I've also added a new status page, where you can keep tabs on the projected release dates for the other volumes and related products. The physical book version has been approved and will appear on amazon in about a week or so.
And of course, the "online book" is already on timba.com, with one or two complete tumbaos - with audio - from each of the first 6 volumes.
To clear up any confusion, here's how it works: for each volume in the series there are actually FOUR different "products". Click "continue reading" below for the details.

Lo que va a partir el Yuma
Prepárense pa'l show de la Charanga
La Charanga Habanera has passed through several distinct incarnations in its 21-year existence starting as a traditional charanga in 1988, transforming into one of the most influential timba bands of the 1990s and changing with the times into a timbaton/timpop band in the past couple of years. Each epoch has had it's own character and made the questions "which is your favorite version of La Charanga Habanera?" a favorite topic among timberos. If you are new to timba, check out the History articles about the Charanga Habanera.
La Charanga Habanera - Stockholm, Sweden 28 November 2009
What is undisputeable is that under director David Calzado’s guiding hand, the band has remained at the top of the Cuban charts since 1992, adapting to the recent reggaeton explosion in Cuba by successfully integrating reggaeton into their music and collaborating with some of the most popular reggaeton bands such as Eddy-K, Gente D’Zona and Baby Lores & El Chacal. With the approaching “new premier” of the Charanga Habanera in the US, I think it is timely to share my concert report from Stockholm, November 28, 2009.
