This is undoubtedly Manolito’s biggest international al hit. A huge breakthrough for Cuban-Salsa if you think that the market was and (probably is) mostly dominated by Puerto-Rican/NewYorican productions. Marcando la distancia was danced in every Salsa-discotheek around the globe.
El Indio (still the best singer Manolito ever had. period) establishes here once again what a great singer he is. His live performances of “Marcando la distancia” are even better. Killer!
This is a must-have for every lover of Cuban Salsa. Not an easy chart though. For the trained percussionists and singers.
