ABOUT THE MUSIC
CUBA CUBA features the stars from the legendary EGREM studios in Havana. Exclusive tracks including traditional son* from Compay Segundo & Eliades Ochoa, who offer their magic on such gems as,"Saludo Compay", "Cuidadito, Compay Gallo" to the up-tempo rhythms from Ibrahim Ferrer on "El Platanal De Bartolo". The Cuban charm continues with beautiful piano from the great Ruben Gonzalez, to the romance and beauty of Omara Portuondo on one of the most beautiful songs to come from the island, entitled "Tres Palabras".
FRESH SOUNDS FROM CUBA
CUBA CUBA also contains brand new recordings from former Afro Cuban All Stars lead singer Felix Baloy whose new album "Un Poquito De Fe" has received great reviews across the world, confirming the singer's status as one of Cuba's top vocalists. This collection steps away from the Buena Vista gang while introducing new and upcoming talent from the land of warmth and charm (Cigars and Rhum!) Manolito Simonet delivers Cuba's hit song of the year with,"Locos Por Mi Habana" where we are given virtual ear listening tour of all of the reasons we love Havana! Pedro Luis Ferrer who states that his music is not traditional as it sounds, the self proclaimed Revolutionary reinvents Cuban Music on his own terms and offers a new style son*.
*son is a vocal or instrumental dance genre that is one of the most basic forms of Popular Cuban Music. It is danced by couples holding each other close!
