ORISHAS

Musica para Danzar

Ballet Folklorico
CUTUMBA
de Santiago

Released by the Academy of Cuban Folklore and Dance in Seatlle, WA.

Recorded in Santiago de Cuba in 2006, features the most outstanding members of the internationally renowned Ballet Folklorico Cutumba, one of Cuba's most vibrant folkloric dance troupes. While this recording was produced with the idea of helping students of Orisha dance to deepen their understanding of the music & develop more confidence & independence, it also holds its own as a beautiful document of the traditional music of the Lukumi in Santiago de Cuba. The tracks consist of commonly heard toques with clearly defined transitions. For example, Eleggua follows a very simple progression from La Topa to Ynongo to Chachalokuafun. After learning the distinct steps & figures of each toque, dancers can develop their own choreographies and thoroughly enjoy danzando para los Orishas.
