Cooking with Ray

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

I was laying beside the pool today enjoying the sun and “Cocinando” popped into my head, almost on cue.  The cool vocals, spacey keyboards and ubiquitous güiro licks set the tone just right for this 10 minute plus workout.  A perfect track for all your lazy afternoon needs.  Might just be my summer ’09 grilling anthem!

I also am including “Alafia Cumaye” due to how amazing it is.
