    New timba

    It actually wasn't sarcasm...when the song came on, because it is named "Pa Que Se..." I didn't suspect it and it was a really nice surprise, but it looks really sarcastic due to the many versions of it (to the point I even doubted myself!). Somehow when LQSS and LVV record remakes, the feels a...

    Classic timba

    Just started making my way through your suggestions (El Tragico I've already played to death upon buying Echale Limon). This song has too many uncanny similarities to Specifically the chord progression and mambo melody at the end. Is there a reason for this? Like a homage or something?

    If someone can summarise what Samuel Formell says from the 12.20 mark I'd really appreciate it. Especially regarding the Songo. I promise I'll learn Spanish soon!

    Klimax seems a bit too silky for my preference.

    New timba

    Do klimax deserve a mention? According to timba.com the first three albums are masterpieces, but I never really found klimax that accessible, I'm not sure which their "classic" songs are.
