Actually I mean in general, there aren't many people interested in Cuban Spanish, or the larger spectrum of Caribbean Spanish, here at Unilang.
I know the BVSC album was very popular and maybe in some areas of the world it was popular enough to enter the mainstream, but the album itself was an effort to revive traditional Cuban music that had
fallen out of the mainstream. That anyone would call it "obvious" today just shows how incredibly successful it was in doing what the musicians intended it to do.
I've been a long-time fan of Raphaël Haroche and have mentioned his music many times in my SAC threads. He is, in my opinion, a brilliant lyricist in French, whose writing style is contemporary bridge between great English language rock lyricists like David Bowie and Bob Dylan to French poets like Rimbaud and Prévert. But also, some of his more compositionally interesting songs make musical references to his non-French heritage (in this particular song, it's his Argentinian heritage), which is something I wish he did more of. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvGLfeJC1Ow
Oh and in mentioning Prévert, I just reminded myself of this song, so now I have to listen to it too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzuTdVJG-ck
