Editor's Pick:
Back in stock!
An actual Classic from 1993. Amazing Senegalese vocalists (Pape Seck, Medoune Diallo, Nicolas Menheim) with the best New York Latin coroistas and musicians: Adalberto Santiago, Yayo El Indio, Ronnie Baro, Jose "Chombo" Silva, Mario Rivera, Sergio George, Papo Pepin, Bobby Allende, Pablo "El Chino" Nunez, Eddy Zervigon, Hector "Bomberito" Zarzuela and many others!
"Cultural interchange at its best! A summit meeting between Africa, New York and the Caribbean, all with one thing in common--good ol' down home Cuban montuno." (Chico Alvarez, 96/97 Catalog)
"This is aural evidence of how serious African musicians feel about Cuban music. The performances of Eddy Zervigon, Chombo Silva and vocalist Ronnie Baro are outstanding." (Max Salazar, 96/97 Catalog)
"When a trio of Senegalese vocalists meets the cream of New York's Latin session players, magic ensues. A contemporary Afro-Cuban fusion that is a total knockout, from start to finish. I can't wait for Volume 2." (George De Stefano, 94/95 Catalog) (DR, 2015-02-04)
