Havana nights

Carlos Otero was a singer from Venezuela. He had some successes in Germany in the fifties. I’m not sure from what time this record is, but I expect it to be from the same time. My father would love this record, as he belongs to a period where these tropical tunes were very popular.

I suppose that also has to do with the relative scarceness of these sounds. When it was still the journey of a lifetime to actually go there, listening to records like this brought those dreamy beaches closer. A different age.
