Carlos Manuel

Malo Cantidad ***
CD (Palm Pictures 2064 (OS6)), Released 2001;
Editor's Pick:
New old stock found! Limited quantities...
At the time of this release "Malo Cantidad" is the hottest hit in Cuba. This release, while mostly timba in feel, is also a hybrid of salsa, soca, caypso, ragga and rap. It is the 'bomb'... the missile that Cuba's youth is currently riding. He is not a one-hit wonder, his first CD, "Por La Vena El Gusto," is still a good seller (it came out in 1999), and whether his popularity is tied to his youth and good looks is to miss the point. He is obviously touching a nerve that is satisfying a great need in the Cuban youth culture. To feel connected to the larger world beyond the beaches of the island is something that Manuel understands very well. He wants to be a universal star, not just a star on his island. His sound, although very modern and very Cuban, is something quite larger that that. Could he be Cuba's answer to Ricky Martin? Check it out. (BP, 2011-07-15)
