Ibrahim Ferrer - "Que Bueno Baila Usted"

So I was listening to my Cesaria Evora Pandora station earlier this week and while listening I came across a song by a singer named Ibrahim Ferrer. The song was amazing and after listening to it I of course added an Ibrahim Ferrer station on Pandora and I've been watching/listening to his songs on YouTube all week. Ferrer, who passed away several years ago, was an Afro-Cuban artist who gained much fame due to his music.

According to Wikipedia, Ferrer's mother actually gave birth to him at a dance. I find that pretty amazing because his more fast-paced songs are definitely great dance songs. Check out one of my newfound favorite's from Ferrer below.
