Rafaelito y su Tumbao featuring Mayito Rivera “Ese Soy Yo”

“Ese soy yo” is the new single by Rafaelito that will be included in his first album called “Accelerate”. This time with the participation in the voice of nothing more and nothing less than the one who was “baptized” by the maestro Juan Formell founder of the famous Los Van Van as “El Poeta de la Rumba” Mario, Mayito Rivera.

Son Montuno from the Rafael Pareja songwriting pen, where the influences of Arsenio Rodriguez, Cuban Son, Mambo and New York Salsa from the 60s and 70s stand out, all in a mixture of prose and poetry, of Peruvian Creole music, with a modern sound but with a clear line in the tradition of Son.

MALAMANYA “Malamanya”


“Keeping Afro-Cuban inspired music alive! It’s just so gosh-darn fun!”

Malamanya is a United States based band comprised of musicians who share a mutual respect and enthusiasm for traditional rhythms and melodies from Cuba and Latin America. Their style is vintage and their sound is classic.

Their onstage energy and compositions reflect the communal, complex, and celebratory spirit prevalent in these musical genres. Their unique renditions of old, forgotten songs continue to energize diverse audiences.

Malamanya released a new full length album in August 2016.  A vintage Afro-Latin music project, with powerful female vocals and an unstoppable groove, recorded live in the studio using analog tape.
