From Eastern Cuba, known as Oriente, which has brought us Trio Matamoros and Los Guaracheros de Oriente, we present Bimbi y su Trio Oriental. Led by Maximiliano “Bimbi” Sánchez, the trio are known for their humorous double-entendre lyrics of the guaracha, sung in beguiling harmonies, set to the beat and special stringed interplay of the son oriental. This album is an ode to the Cuban son with mostly bolero son and son montuno songs, many of which Bimbi himself composed. Bimbi y su Trio Oriental is now available to stream everywhere.

We have two new digital releases from a former member of the famed bolero trio Los Panchos: Julito Rodriguez.

Memorias Para Siempre, Vol. 8 features many beloved classics such as Besame Mucho, Quien Sera, and Quiza, Quiza, Quiza. We especially love their bossa nova take on Tipi Tipi Tin.

La Recompensa is filled with laidback guitars and soothing harmonies. The standout track is their version of El Negro Zumbon titled Anna -- in reference to the the 50s Italian film from which the song originates -- which is bright and dynamic: a subtle burst of energy!
