Orishas give Santa Cruz Carnaval a boost

Orishas in Los Realejos

Santa Cruz' carnaval is to get another boost, when Hip Hop Conga, the official tune of Carnaval 2008 (with all it's references to the city, the fiesta and the word shared by Cuba and the Canary Islands: guagua (bus)), written and performed by Orishas (the Cuban hip-hop band, who we saw in Los Realejos at the beginning of the month) appears as a bonus track on their fourth album, Cosita Buena.

Crappy photo, I know, but it proves I was there at their amazing concert on an open-air basketball court - squashed surrealistically between blocks of flats - where, as Andy says here, they went through their entire repertoire.

Actually, they did Hip Hop Conga twice (because of the local relevance, naturally) and, I think Yotuel might have mentioned the upcoming album release - about a dozen times or more. :-) Fair exchange (of promotions) is no robbery!
