Conjunto Guaguanco Matancero

Guaguanco - Con Papin Y Sus Rumberos
CD (Antilla 565),
Description:
A classic. See also: Los Muñequitos de Matanzas.
Reviews:
"Half of this recording is good (the cuts which are performed by Papín y sus Rumberos), but the other half is great. This is the original Conjunto Guaguanco Matancero in action, with its founders 'Fuico,' 'Saldiguera,' and 'Virulilla' on the vocals--before they became known as the Muñequitos.' (The first cut, entitled 'Los Muñequitos,' became so popular it eventually became their nickname.) Without a doubt, this is my favorite rumba record. The drumming is tonal and haunting in the slow Matanzas style, and the vocal harmonies are so tight, so in tune, and so precise, it stands your hair on end. The group, which now calls itself 'Los Muñequitos de Matanzas,' is attempting to carry on this tradition, but, in my opinion, they cannot measure up to this sound; this is 'the real McCoy.'" (Henry Fiol 98/99 Catalog)
"The 'Conjunto Guaguancó Matancero' is better known as Los Muñequitos de Matanzas. One half of this album is their classic first recordings with Saldinguera and Virulilla singing; the other half is by Los Papines from Havana. A must-have. " (Ned Sublette 94/95 Catalog)
