AFRO-CUBA:
A Musical
Anthology
$28


Released by Rounder.

   

*********************************
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CD IS
OUT OF PRINT
BUT WE DO HAVE SOME FOR SALE
*********************************

As these CDs are hard to find,
some of the ones we have may have blemishes from being 'old stock' or previously used but they will be in good playable condition.

Otherwise, you may download the album in mp3 format on amazon. Amazon also offers a CD for $14, but this is just a burned CD from the same mp3 tracks you can download. Either way, the audio quality will not be as good and you will not get the booklet that is part of the actual CD.

About this CD:
Represented in this collection are the four major divisions of Afro-Cuban culture: Lucumí, Arará, Abakuá, and Kongo. All but one of the selections are drawn from field and studio recordings made in Cuba from roughly 1948 to the 1994. Some were recorded in cabildos, associations formed by free and enslaved blacks from the same African "nation," some of which have survived to this day. Also represented are the major varieties of rumba, music of the Haitian-Cubans, and examples of carnival music from Santiago de Cuba and Havana. The detailed notes by Morton Marks add up to a thorough mini-course in Afro-Cuban rhythms.
