Putumayo Presents: Cafe Cubano [Parental Advisory]
By

Rating
Caf Cubano is a captivating collection that will transport listeners to the charming cafes of this musically-rich Caribbean island. This album features a selection of exceptional performers who have incorporated Cuba's diverse musical traditions and distinctive styles into their music. Several of the songs feature influences from the nueva trova movement, in which lyrical poetry is joined with Pan-American folk traditions. Others remain true to the sultry guajiras, romantic boleros and traditional sones which were the underpinning of the renowned Buena Vista Social Club recordings. Cuban music traces its roots back to the melodies of Europe and the rhythms of Africa, and the inspiring blend that resulted from years of interaction between these diverse cultures.

  • Like most Putumayo samplers, CAF CUBANO offers a tastefully chosen introduction to the dazzlingly rich musical traditions of a culture that may not be immediately familiar to Western listeners. CAF CUBANO explores the caf music of Cuba, from sones to boleros to mambos to "nueva trova" (which marries folk styles to lyrical poems). Included on this compilation are the balladeer Armando Garzon, former Orchestra Reve vocalist Felix Baloy, and 1960s songwriter Pedro Luis Ferrer, making for a delightfully well-rounded sojourn into the musical world of Cuba.
