La canción de la semana #97

Orquesta Anacaona, Cuba's oldest all-girl dance band, was founded in 1932 by the sisters Castro (not related to Fidel). It was named after the Indian Queen, Anacaona. Thanks to this publication in Times Online, you can enjoy some of the songs recorded back in 1937. All of them are great but my choice is Oh! Marambé Maramba.

La canción de la semana #95

Now for something completely different: Led Zeppelin's Four Sticks as performed by Sones de México. This song appears on Chicago ensemble's new album, Esta Tierra Es Tuya.
