Music Appreciation

Last night a friend of ours took us to see the Afro-Cuban All Stars, an Afro-Cuban band from Cuba that has been around for four generations now. It was birthed out of the Buena Vista Social Club recordings. This group was just incredible.

It's hard to explain just how incredible it was. Let me just say that by the end of the night, I had cried over the piano solo, my ears hurt from getting so close, my feet hurt from dancing so much, and my face hurt from smiling so much. It gave me an entirely new appreciate for their culture. This video just doesn't do a live concert justice, but it may give you an idea of what it was like. Enjoy!
