Que Bueno Baila Usted

Well, after attempting to finish up a post, we decided to chill out.

I mean, it's Friday night, where there should be music, and dancing.

So, we will have music and dancing!

We dug out a "gigante" classic for you this evening.

It comes from the legendary Cuban superstar, Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré Gutiérrez, otherwise known as Benny Moré.

There has never been a Cuban popular singer like Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré Gutierrez, El Benny. There might never be again. - Ivan Castro

So exulted is Benny Moré, an annual music festival is held in his hometown of Cienfuegos, where, in 2009, his grave was declared a "national monument and the Benny Moré Municipal Museum, which will exhibit the artist’s death mask, will be reopened."

I can't say, sit back and listen.

Get up and dance!
