Re-imagining pop tunes with a Cuban beat

I don't know how I missed this in the past, but if you like Cuban music, the album "Rythms del Mundo Cuba" is worth a listen.

It came out back in 2006 and has a selection of pop songs redone to a Cuban beat. What originally caught my ear was hearing a Cuban version of Coldplay's Clocks while listening to Radio Paradise.

The album includes songs by Sting, U2, Franz Ferdinand, Ibrahim Ferrer, and more!

You can read and listen to more about the album on the official web site All profits from the album go to a good cause, too: Artists Project Earth (APE).

The album is available on iTunes here: Rhythms del Mundo & Coldplay - Rhythms del Mundo Cuba
