Otra Noche Más is one of the first composition by Cuban singer/songwriter, Roberto Poveda. It was written at the start of his career in 1985. The original song and lyrics speak to an idyllic freedom that transcends all walks of life. It brings you back to the state one can only experience in the presence of nature. It’s no coincidence the song of freedom was picked up and recorded by the national record label of Cuba, EGREM. But it met an interesting fate and was mysteriously lost without a trace. Nearly 35 years later, during the 2020 pandemic, Roberto brought the song back to life. He co-produced it in the home studio of Layton Weedeman, owner of Yellow Couch Music and drummer of Courtesy Tier. This updated version brings a new spin, flair, joy, and upbeat tempo to the song’s original message.
In 2018, Layton and Roberto started POVEDA, a project re-working and re-tooling Roberto’s catalog of songs. It spanned out over the course of 30 years, exploring the music of the Cuban Troubadour. Otra Noche Más marks the beginning of this series of releases. POVEDA is joined by many friends with Roberto as lead singer, Layton on drums and percussion, and features Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, Juan-Carlos Formell, the great nephew of legendary Spanish-Cuban singer Antonio Machin, Loisel Machin Rodriguez, German saxophonist and flutist, Lars Haake, and Cuban Singer and former member of Las Chicas Del Son, Danae Blanco Villanueva
