Song of the day

Having a song of the day would make more sense if I had one every day, I suppose ...

Bobi Cespedes is a percussionist and singer, who put out an album a few years ago on Six Degrees. She also plays with Micky Hart's Planet Drum. She's originally from Cuba, and her work combines African and Latin American influences.

This track though reminds me of Burial Mix, even as it sounds very Cuban, and it's a lovely song besides. I've been obsessed with it since I heard it on a Six Degrees sampler I pulled at random out of mess in my studio to play on my drive up to Madison.
