about

Tell someone that you're going to Cuba next week and they'd say: "Say hi to Fidel for me." Everyone made the same joke. There are ten million people in Cuba and we've reduced them all to one man.
Now is a time of tremendous creativity as well as tremendous suffering in Cuba. You can feel the electricity in the street. A new generation has come of age and is feeling its way as best it can. It's articulate, literate, passionate, and fiercely musical.
While the previous Luaka Bop collection, Cuba Classics 2, emphasized typical Cuban music, this volume stresses discoveries: Irakere inventing bata-rock, Los Van Van adding the trombone-conjunto sound to their synthed-up charanga, Síntesis electrifying centuries-old African melodies, Carlos Varela becoming the poet of Havana.
It is also, perhaps a selection that few Cubans wwould have made. Singer-songwriter Pablo Milanés on the same record with Cuban ska band Los Blues!? What this collection says is, if you thought you knew what Cuba was, think again.
