“Chan Chan” by Compay Segundo

November 10, 2008

“Chan Chan” is an original song by the late Cuban artist Compay Segundo. It’s the opening track on the soundtrack to Buena Vista Social Club, a fascinating movie that documents the story of several Cuban jazz musicians. Buena Vista Social Club is available on NetFlix and is highly recommended. You’ll love it, and if it doesn’t work out for you, put your hand out like the rest of the country in hopes the government will bail you out of your situation.
