Afrocubism – “Afrocubism” – [World Circuit]

Cousin Mary   12/8/2010   CD, International

This collaboration between musicians from Mali and Cuba playing both tunes from Cuba and Africa puts a new light on the African roots of Cuban music. Delightful beats, singing, instrumentals and percussion.

The Africans on this recording had been slated to perform on the seminal release “Buena Vista Social Club”, but were unable to get to that recording. “??Cuando llegar???” (When will I arrive? (track 2)) Fortunate for us, the answer is “ahora” (now).
