Thanks to UU member dktoller for the link to UkeHeidi's Cha-Cha contest, this is my entry. (Loved your "oye como va"). Here's the link again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgxNe_cVZFc

This is my first multi-tracked youtube, but it's just a drum loop, my soprano on rhythm, my tenor for the solos, and the vocals.

Ochi Chernye is an old Russian song that has been done in many genres and languages. Django Reinhardt recorded one of the earliest jazz renditions, and it was also apparently a favorite in Cuba, so I figured it would work with a latin beat. Hope you like it.
