The Rough Guide to the Music of Cuba (Second Edition)


Cuba has had a greater impact on popular music and dance worldwide than any other country in Latin America. This album explores the Afro-Cuban roots of salsa and features the best rumba, guaguanco, son, jazz and more from this incredibly rich musical island. Also included it a bonus CD by Sierra Maesta, their album 'Son: Soul of a Nation'. Sierra Maestra, Cuba's leading son group, who are largely responsible for the style's revival, present their personal account of the genre's development in 'Son: Soul Of A Nation'. The Bedrock of Cuban music, son has shaped much of twentieth-century Latin music, and this album, recorded in Havana, pays tribute to the great writers of the past, selecting lesser-known classics alongside legendary tunes.
