Hello folks,

Thanks to Moira (via Rob) for this suggestion which I will start on Monday morning. So lets have your suggestions of Cuban music/musicians please.

“The Caribbean island of Cuba has developed a wide range of creolized musical styles, based on its cultural origins in Europe and Africa. Since the nineteenth century its music has been hugely popular and influential throughout the world. It has been perhaps the most popular form of world music since the introduction of recording technology” from

    A great start is The Buena Vista Social Club–both the movie and CD. Ry Cooder traveled to Cuba to discover the musicians and music of Cuban jazz. He produced the famous CD and other BVSC members. This is only one angle on Cuban jazz music. Most of the musicians from the movie have since died, but many recorded music after the success of BVSC. Pianist Ruben Gonzalez (Introducing . . . Ruben Gonzalez) and singer Ibrahim Ferrer (Buena Vista Social Club Presents Ibrahim Ferrer) are the most famous from that group of musicians.
