Helpless in the face of Hurricane Ike, which is devastating Haiti and Cuba, I post one of my favorite Cuban songs, "Amor Verdadero," by the Afro-Cuban All Stars.
The music of Cuba is one of the island's great contributions to civilization. Enjoy it! You cannot hear this music without moving. Sing in the face of stormy weather. May the people dance again!
Here it is: Amor Verdadero, live.
(Also Amor Verdadero, the recording,with no video but great sound. )
I will now hunt for some favorite Haitian music and post it shortly.
