Album Review
Margy Kahn
Reviewed 2019-10-29
Multi-faceted multi-instrumentalist vocalist-lyricist--composer mixes it up with genres and his own creativity for a unique up-to-date Afro-Cuban sound all his own

No FCC's; Favorite Tracks: 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12

1- Yo No Se –2:29 – bass sets up beat, funk lyrics with electronica; punchy (has a companion video where Alex Cuba plays all the the parts)

*2—Cantando De Alegria –3:36-- slow cumbia – nice vocals and guitar

*3—Ciudad Hembra (La Habana) –3:31 – paean to the city of Havana; both heartfelt and dancey

4 –Voz de Corazones –4:19-- solo on following your heart to make the world a better place

*5—Dividido –3:34—two voices trade off in this uptempo piece celebrating differences

6—Esta Situacion—3:28 – pretty song about love

7—De Los Dos –4:01-- bolero-based jazz piece on risking love after having your heart broken

*8—Solo Mia –4:15 – nice staccato bossa rhythm underpinning quiet lyrics about love

9—Las Mujeres –3:30-- light-hearted call for a change in the position of women

*10-- Y Si Manana—3:37 – romantic duet with guitar; nice modulation and harmonies

11—No Son Manera –3:44 –intimate ballad sung with nylon guitar

*12—Hoy Como Ayer—4:32-- beautiful, heartfelt ballad
