Overview

This second of three 1990 volumes devoted to past and present Afro-Cuban music includes fiery contemporary songs from Irakere and Los Van Van, and vintage tunes by Estrellas Cubanas, Orquesta Orestes Lopez, and Isaac Oviedo and his family. The modern numbers include jazz, rock, and pop influences backed by riveting Afro-Cuban beats; the older pieces spotlighted both classic rhythms and the spirit and customs they represented, providing a direct link with traditional African and Iberian religion and culture.
