Waiting for Godot

It's been a long, long time since I posted about the Mamborama Greatest Hits CD with the new song Dame Un Dia Sin Luchar, and some other unreleased tracks. It's still on, it's just that I'm waiting for someone to complete the new song, and I can be patient. No track shall be released before its time.

The new tune has Carlos Manuel Kalunga on lead vocals, and I was thinking that it's a shame that I have NO fucking offers to tour Europe now, because I could easily put together a band that would even exceed the group I took there in 2005. El Indio is at libery, as is Kalunga, and Pepito has told me a million times that he would love to tour with Mamborama. That might be harder to pull off from Miami than Havana, but neither one is easy, but worth the trouble. The 2005 tour was the hardest thing I ever pulled off. The bureaucracy was crazy, the visas were a nightmare, and the agent ripped me off, but in the end, it was worth it, both for me, the musicos, and everyone that came to the gigs. It's a shame that no one has the foresight to bring us back. Whatever.

Point is, though, I am waiting for someone to play something on the new tune, and I can wait a bit more. It probably won't be important to you, but it's important to me.

Here's an online scrapbook of photos of La Habana and some of the recording sessions for the new album.
