Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor are back with another hot timba album. Maykel is a prolific composer and the band has been churning out one CD every other year to their fans’ delight. Maykel consistently composes solid, catchy lyrics and combines them with irresistible dancefloor-ready arrangements that make Maykel’s songs favorites among DJs and dancers.
“Soy lo que te hala” returns somewhat to the sello of their mega-success debut album “Recoge y vete”. This may in part be due to the return of singer Yordi Larrazabal. There are just certain combinations of musicians that seem to have something special that makes them more than the sum of their parts. Maykel and Yordi are an example of this. Yordi sings lead on four of the ten songs on the album, and when you hear them you know that you are listening to Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor. Pavel “La Figura” Delgado and Yasser Ramos round out the front line, which is one of the most charismatic in Havana today
