Best of Bamboleo
(With DVD, 2PC)
(CD with DVD) the most visually exciting group in Cuba presents a greatest hits package featuring a bonus DVD of Bamboleo's performances around the world (CD includes two hot, brand new, never before released songs!). The timba group is one hot number, from it's music and choreography to it's well-dressed singers and musicians. Lazaro Valdes leads the band, and he also plays the piano, arranges, composes, and writes songs. He culled musicians from the cream of the crop, incorporating into his new troupe many who had trained at Havana's National School of the Arts. He added some spark with vocalist Haila Mompie, who in turn recruited vocalist Vannia Borges. Guantanamo native Yordamis Megret came to the group in 1998, a year after Mompie left.
