Irosso Obbá

Santa Palabra
Import CD (Envidia 7182), Released 2007;
Editor's Pick:
We might be in a golden era of rumba and Santeria recordings; they’re everywhere, and always good, with hardly any tampering. The best thing that could be done is to record the music well, documentary style, and that’s what we have here, a rumba recording from a group that’s located on Hamel Street in Havana, one of the music’s more famous addresses. The group sounds young and energetic, with nicely dense coros; the leader and lead singer Jorge Enrique Salazar sings with precision. He writes good tunes, too, and he and the group work through "Santa Palabra," the NG La Banda classic. I could use the tunes lasting longer, but most of them clock in at 5 or more minutes; still, this stuff could last all night it’s so good.
Highly Recommended. (Peter Watrous, 2007-07-16)
