Hanny - Como Droga Poderosa by Mr Bongo published on 2011/07/25 15:45:18 +0000 The groundbreaking international debut from Cuban star Hanny, real name Leosel Jimenez Licea. Whilst playing as a busker on the streets of Havana at just 24, Hanny was discovered by Mr Bongo. The discovery led to this recording which introduces Hanny’s unique and highly influential style. Hanny combines a respect for the very best of traditional Cuban songwriting and musicianship with a contemporary flair and passion. Progressive arrangements, atypical instrumentation (such as the use of cello) and a lyrical depth not seen in modern salsa music are all traits of this album.
