The objective of this book and of a series of volumes to follow is to present Afro-Cuban songs for those interested in learning them in their rich variety, and in their different manifestations in the folkloric life or tradition of Cuba today. These volumes will present the songs within their proper context and with the appropriate clave, melody and time relationships.

The purpose of this book is to present the songs for those interested in learning to sing them. In order to teach the melody of the songs, the recording of the songs are first presented with the bell (CD one), we then hear the the songs with the drums (CDs two and three).
