Manteca by Chicas de la Habana

I think Dizzy would have loved this band and this version of the classic he wrote with Chano Pozo.

Chicas de la Habana are, well, chicas de la Habana, young women from Havana.

They’re currently based in Madrid, Spain.

As is the case for so many outstanding Cuban musicians, it’s not easy finding information about them, but their music speaks for itself.
