Cuban doo-wop: Who knew! Apparently a lot of people. But for those who, like us, aren’t familiar with Los Zafiros—a band from the ’60s often compared with the Beatles in regards to timing and fame—have a listen to “Un Nombre De Mujer” and relish in its Latin-infused rhythmic blues. To dig deeper, check out “Music from the Edge of Time,” the 2004 documentary about the legendary band from Havana, which was ultimately known for heavy drinking, political infighting and fast-occurring international success. You can also have a full listen to their extensive discography on Spotify.
