I was literaly stunted when I listened to this album the first time. I was just looking for some new dance music and what I got was some crazy good new innovative sound. I immediately purchased this album and I have been rocking out every since. The sound is fresh and innovative and it is good blend of history cubana sound with some really new rap and reggaeton sounds. Please enjoy!
Also seller and product service was fantastic. Nuff said!
A lovely album that covers a range of moods and styles, and one that shows that Cuban music remains vital, in all senses of that word.
Great comp by Gilles which is exploring Cuban artists. Nice mix of traditional and modern beats. Job well done!
