CUBA 1958

Just as Copernicus once kicked the earth out of the center of the universe, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban music have brought us closer to the center of the cosmos.
Cuba in the 1950s: Rumba, Conga, Danzon, Guaracha, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Charanga, Batanga, Guaguanco, Son, Montuno, Guajira, Afro, Pregón, Bembo, Bembe, Descarga, Seis Chorreao, Bolero .. Everything in motion, sometimes a big stage, sometimes a backyard ritual, at the same time rooted in the traditions of Africa and a futuristic trans-national dance floor. Music for adults, inspiration of all subsequent pop music experiments and theoretical expositions in all parts of the world.

I hope you like this hour with gems from my collection of Cuban vinyls.
