Burbles was a Cuban rock band in the early 1990s. The band, formed mainly by Carlos Cobas and Raul Barroso, had a significant success among the rock bands in Cuba. "Canción por los Perros" (Song for Dogs),[1] "Soy como no quiero" (I don't like myself), “La alegría del mundo" (The joy of the world), "Gaviotas en el mar" (Gulls on the sea), among others, were some of its most popular songs.

The band was formed originally in 1982 at the University of Havana, with Raul Barroso (vocals, bass), Carlos Cobas (vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica), Miguel Angel Mendez (lead guitar) and Alejandro Lopez (drums),[2] although at that time also had other members, such as Julio Rojas (guitar) and drummers Rodolfo Cala, Erick Pi and Leopoldo Alvarez. In January 1985 lead guitarist Méndez goes to “Eclipse” and a long period of silence follows, although the binomial Cobas/Barroso is still active. Burbles returnes in early 1994 with Abraham Alcover[3] (guitar, ex-Cuatro Gatos)[4] and Edgardo “Yayo” Serka (drums).[5] Then cut a record that included "Canción por los Perros" (Song for Dogs).[6] This song had a controversial paper in the public media of the country due to the social criticism that was docking. In the same year the group produced three musical videos for the national television, including the "Song for the Dogs". In January 1995 the band debuts at the National Guignol Theater ensuing new changes: Drummers Osmel Prado[7] and Carlos Alberto Estevez are used until the end of that year. In 1996 the band began working with Carlos Rodriguez Obaya (drums, ex-Los Gens),[8] with whom the second album is recorded "Gaviotas en el mar" (Gulls in the sea) and the "Año Bisiesto" (Leap Year) album, with contributions from Dagoberto Pedraja.[9] The group line could be described as Pop-Rock: own material sung in Spanish. After recording the album, the band recesses all activity.
