La Negra Tiene Tumbao is the Latin Grammy® winner in the Best Salsa category. Cuban-born Celia Cruz is known as the soulful "Queen of Salsa" throughout the world and the arranger, Victor López, former lead trumpet player with the Miami Sound Machine, has performed many times with Celia. The repetitive rhythmic figures provide tremendous drive to this chart. Ranges are modest and the overall chart will take minimum rehearsal time. Optional auxiliary percussion plus all the usual additional parts make this a sure-fire hit with the band and the audience. It is hot!
