Cuban Nights [Narada]

 
While the world's gone gaga for Cuba's pre-Revolution oldsters, independent label Ahí-Namá has scooped up Havana's Young Turks. The bands here specialize in timba, Cuba's latest rhythm, which hits harder, faster, and longer than any mere Social Club outing. Bamboleo sets the pace, filtering Parliament-style funk through rumba rhythms - "Yo No Me

Overview

While the world's gone gaga for Cuba's pre-Revolution oldsters, independent label Ahí-Namá has scooped up Havana's Young Turks. The bands here specialize in timba, Cuba's latest rhythm, which hits harder, faster, and longer than any mere Social Club outing. Bamboleo sets the pace, filtering Parliament-style funk through rumba rhythms - "Yo No Me Parezco a Nadie" is sublime -- but Maraca and veteran crooner Rolo Martinez show they can roll with the new, too.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
As the title suggests, Cuban Nights collects songs from Cuban artists like Bamboleo, Maraca, and Laito. Maraca's "Ven, Vamo a Bailar," Rolo Martinez's "La Runidero," Bamboleo's "Opening," and Laito's "Sonaron los Canonazos" are among the highlights of this Latin compilation.
