Notes
-  A typical Afro-Cuban song, introduced in Spanish by the singer and explained, in English, by pianist Art Pages.
-  As later translated by Art Pages, "The song that you have just heard Carlos Pous sing, it's sort of a Negro song. It's a Negro telling his girl not to mix with another tribe because he does not consider them as good as they are and he does not want to mix
-  Ybor City, now a neighborhood within Tampa, was settled in 1886 by Cuban cigar manufacturers under the leadership of Vicente Martínez de Ybor. The cigar companies moved from Key West to avoid unionization of their workers.
-  The Cuban Club is a recreational society founded in 1899 by Cuban immigrants.
