Hey folks, I wanted to let all of you know that a very talented and outspoken former member of Rumbo Rumba, Angel David Lindes, is currently working on a solo project. However, he needs your help.

Rumbo Rumba is new on the Utah music scene, but they are now offering free song downloads on their awesomely-designed website.
