Monguito ‘El Unico’
Punteame Bien el Tres
Teca Records 1979

One of my favourite Cuban singers is Monguito ‘El Unico’.
The first time I heard him must have been through ‘Sabrosura’
with Johnny Pacheco from 1980 on Fania. From that moment
on I bought every album I found. A great discovery also was
when I heard him on Arsenio Rodriguez’ album ‘Primitivo’.
Monguito’s nasal voice is indeed unique .. listen ..

Eén van m’n favoriete Cubaanse zangers is Monguito ‘El Unico’.
Ik moet hem voor het eerst gehoord hebben op ‘Sabrosura’,
met Johhny Pacheco op Fania uit 1980. Vanaf dat moment ben
ik alles gaan kopen wat ik maar van hem tegenkwam. Een ont-
dekking was ook toen hem hoorde op Arsenio Rodriguez’ album
‘Primitivo’. Monguito’s nasale stemgeluid is met recht uniek ..

  1. All the previous posts were very enjoyable. El Unico has an agreeable timbre to his voice, his band muy caliente and always lays down some spicy arrangements. Muchisimo gracias por todos.
