CULT MUSIC OF CUBA

These recordings were made in Havana, Guanabacoa, and Matanzas Province in 1940, during a field trip sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies, in cooperation with Columbia University’s Archive of Primitive Music.

“African traditions have survived strongly, in some respects, to this day. Music and dancing of the African variety have persisted in the cabildos, or societies, organized by the Afro-Cubans. A great many of these societies have a religious basis, while others are survivals of secret organizations which exited previously on the African continent…”

This album was originally released in 1949 by Folkways.  Re-released by Folkways in small 'to-order' quantities, these CDs do not have cover art but do include copies of orginal notes.  These are very rare CDs and are not sold in stores.  We special order these from folkways and have them in stock for instant shipment!
