Afro Funky

Here is a funky Latin percussion masterpeice titled "Afro Funky" from Cuban percussionist Lazaro Pla, aka Manteca. This track is featured on Manteca's only full-length album Ritmo Y Sabor, released in the early seventies. Even though this is Manteca's only known full-length release, this master "bongosero" as many call him, was one of Cuba's finest and most influential musicians dating all the way back from the 1940's, as he is featured on many releases from that region. Standout tracks on Ritmo Y Sabor include "Cosas De Manteca", "Abacua", "Son Montuno", and my personal favorite "Afro Funky". These are the breaks...So Enjoy!
