Rene Lopez pays tribute to Arsenio Rodríguez (Ignacio de Loyola Rodríguez Scull) born Güira de Macurijes, Matanzas, Cuba, August 30, 1911.
The Arsenio piece that Lopez refers to in his talk: “Yo Nací en África” (“I Was Born in Africa”)
A tasty instrumental version of “Bruca Manigua” recorded in 1963. Ffrom the album “La Magia de Rodríguez”
And while we’re at it, why not the original 1937 recording with Miguelito Valdés and Casino de la Playa?
