Bossa Cubana (World Circuit/Nonesuch Records, 1999)

Today’s track was picked by Continental Drift DJ Claire.

Hailing from Cuba, Los Zafiros (The Sapphires) were a close-harmony vocal group that was part of the filĂ­n movement that combined American doo-wop with Cuban genres like bolero and bossa nova. Their album Bossa Cubana was re-released in 1999, and their track “He Venido” was featured on the show Breaking Bad.
