Seattle Buskers Are Great

3 Apr

marimba salsa player on the ave
When I’m visiting another city and I see busking musicians in the street, I always get the urge to record it, just for travel documentation purposes. But it’s almost always a guy or two on acoustic guitars, sounding exactly like a guy or two on acoustic guitars sounds on every other sidewalk, so I keep moving.

But this guy from Cuba on The Ave, the heavily foot-trafficked strip of shops and cheap eats parallel to the University of Washington, kept my attention for a full five minutes. He had to rest in between songs to recover from the physical intensity of “marimba salsa!”

(Note: I didn’t make that fade at the end. He’s just a wiz.)
