#1 Létám (La Familia Salsa Band)

#8 Oye Como Va (Tito Puente / Carlos Santana)

Instructions: CHACHA 130 BPM

Cha cha. We go as YouTube till 2:10. But every chorus is doubled. After 2:10 there are instruments solos, which we end by the 6bars rising (in D) ended by a triola. Then brass + solos, then one last round: break, Oye, and end with break. Last 2 breaks we end with a “Ha”. Note: The sheets for brass are not exact – we play it as in YouTube, the patterns are quite easy.
