George Vega y Afinke have a hot new Guaguanco called “Juancito Farandulero”, which is a track that was definitely made with the bailadores in mind. So far, this song has been well received in Colombia and I’m confident it will catch on here in the states as well.
Group leader George Vega started Afinke back in 1995, but due to health reasons he disbanded the group and waited several years before reuniting the members in 2007. Nicknamed ”cubanpuertocolomboperunica”, the band is made up of a mixture of musicians representing several different Latin nations. That name may be a mouth full to pronounce, but these guys can sure damn play!
Currently, George and the boys are putting the finishing touches on a CD that will drop sometime this year. I’m definitely looking forward to listening to whatever they have in store for us.
I highly recommend this group to all my DJs and Salsa lovers worldwide.
