  • Manolin “El Medico de la Salsa”

    Manolin is a Cuban timba and salsa songwriter, singer, and band leader. Manolín was an amateur songwriter until NG La Banda's leader José Luis "El Tosco" Cortés discovered him at medical school and famously dubbed him "El Médico de la Salsa".

    Manolín's rhythm section was one of the most popular in Cuba. Manolín's unprecedented earning power had a seismic impact on the timba scene, causing a level of excitement among musicians that had not been seen since the 1950s, if ever.
