Album Remarks & Appraisals:

This collection highlights the variety of music from Cuba, perhaps the most influential place in the evolution Latin music. Slave trade and mass European migration brought African and Spanish instruments and rhythms to Cuba. Afro-Cuban influence can be heard in all Latin and South American musical styles. Its proximity to the US encouraged the spread of Cuban music into western culture. Bandleaders like Benny Moré incorporated Cuban music into swing music. And when the Buena Vista Social Club was released in the late 1990s, the world was exposed to the music of Cuba like never before.
