The Tropical Sounds of Cuban Rum

My wife and I have been spending the last few nights going through drink recipes that feature rum in this new cocktail book that we bought. I find there is nothing better than an evening enjoying some tropical rum drinks with some funky Latin music, which brings me to today's featured track by Gnonnas Pedro, titled "Yiri Yiri Boum". This laid-back tropical gem was released back in 1981 off his album El Cochechivo. Pedro was a Benin born multi-instrumentalist who was known in that region for his Cuban influenced music. He played in the Benin based group Los Panchos before starting his own band which was called Les Dadjés. If anything can be certain when it comes to the tropical music that Gnonnas Pedro produced throughout his career, is that the songs should be complimented with a solid dose of Cuban rum. Enjoy!
