Buena Vista Social Club
“El Cuarto de Tula”

Stop bickering, I know this isn’t new. However, I needed a happy song today so just go with it. If this song doesn’t make you want to shake, then your money maker is broke. The music by Ry Cooder, Ibrahim Ferrar, Ruben Gonzalez, Compay Segundo,and Omara Portuondo are very important to this generation. Their music will haunt you. This CD is 10 years old and still an amazingly powerful work. Give it a listen.

From the Album: Buena Vista Social Club

    Very very nice. i usually hate world music for some reason. But this is a good jam, and it plays off the surrounding songs on your blog well. I’m a sucker for A minor anyday too.

    This has some of the same guitar coolness that Tom Waits’ song, Hoist that Rag has… and that’s one of my favorite songs atm. In fact, Hoist that Rag could be a way nastier version of this song…
