La canción de la semana #164
Orlando 'Cachaíto' López, who died on 9 February 2009 in Havana, was a Cuban double bass player who appeared on each of Buena Vista Social Club records and took part in every BVSC tour since 1997 till 2008. His motto was "siempre con swing". This week's theme, Tumbanga, co-written by and featuring Miguel 'Angá' Díaz and Hugh Masekela, is taken from his only solo album, Cachaíto (which won the Best Artist in the Americas category of the BBC Radio 3 Award for Word Music in 2002).
