When you talk to people about the future of Timba, they are often pessimistic saying things like "There is no market for the music outside Cuba, so the artists have to play other genres to survive". Well Calle Real think there is a market for Timba. In fact this band started out in 1999 as a trio playing classic son á la Buena Vista Social Club and over a period of 7 years has developed into one of Europe's most interesting Timba bands. They choose to create the music they want to hear, rather than taking the easier path of catering to the established markets. As Patricio Sobrado, band leader for Calle Real says, "Our drive is purely egotistic, to put out our own music. We love and enjoy listening to it. The rest of the consequences are only bonus."
Tack för Calle Real och Pedro
Thanks to the group and thanks to Pedro
for organizing it.
The group took their audience from the first minute;
and the audience really liked them!
Excellent music, wonderful talented musicians
and good contact with the audience!
One special surprise was that Michel,
one of the band members spoke Finnish!
They played both old (=CD Con Fuerza) and new songs
and told that their next CD should be available in December!
The playlist was about the following:
- Somo Calle Real
- La Eternidad Del Amor
- La Rosa
- Amigo Jose
- El Dony
- El Anillo
- Ya Lo Se
- Abreme La Puerta
- Somos Familia
And as encore:
- Rompiendo Las Murallas
- Negra Tomasa
For some reason the regular drummer was replaced
with Magnus Ahlqvist. He made an incredible excellent job;
I would not have believed that he was a replacement.
We had our own bus with about 45 enthusiastics from Tampere
in the concert. It was really worth travelling for 3 hours
before the concert and other 3 hours after it.
Hope to get Calle Real sometimes in Tampere;
it would blow the club up!
