Click for Home Page for the band Pupy, y los que Son, Son.
Cándido Fabré comes for the first time to Toronto. Without his wonderful Charanga band this time, but if he’s a hit… maybe he’ll be back and bring them ! This time, I think Pupy and band will be able to back him up just fine … In the word of Fabré… “agitala”, shake it !
Another Pupy song “Se Parece A Aquel”… this one is from his latest album “Tranquilo que Yo Controlo”
More Fabré … Yo Quiero Gozar…
