Found this 75 minute gem on youtube:

Tiger Beer, I too like Cuban music, but I have much to learn. I don't have the enough ?? remaining to watch the video above, but I've been able to find some music to listen to by entering the names of the types of Cuban music. It's kind of a hit-and-miss method, but I've been able to discover some music that I like well enough to buy.

You probably know these terms, but I'll mention the song types that I remember for the benefit of anyone else who may be interested: son cubano / rumba guanguancó / guaracha / songo / cha-cha-chá / son montuno / timba. The YouTube search engine will almost always bring results of groups, bands, what have you.

I have music by the Afro Cuban Allstars, Eliades Ochoa, Sierra Maestra, sDamaso Perez Prado, Tumbao Habana and others.

Also, you might check out www.salsaforums.com.
