    What do you think about some Cuban son for this sunday ?
    We had three records and one cd so far. Most of the albums
    I found with them contain doubles, songs that also appear
    on others. On this Colombian release on Discos Orbe only
    a few. Here in the Netherlands we have grey and wet
    weather today, an album like this may cheer up
    your mood. Get, spread and enjoy listening ..

    Wat denk je van wat Cubaanse son voor deze grijze zondag ?
    We hadden tot dusver drie elpees en één cd met hen. De
    meeste platen die ik heb gevonden bevatten veel dubbels,
    nummers die ook al op andere staan. Deze op het Colom-
    biaanse Discos Orbe label slechts enkele. Op zo’n natte
    koude dag kan deze sound ons wellicht wat opvrolijken.

    Een stem die je uit duizenden herkent, zo fris en helder, dat is
    die van Celina Gonzalez. Welk nummer ze ook te pakken neemt,
    het klinkt altijd weer als een klok. Op deze plaat uit 1986 zingt ze
    onder begeleiding van het Conjunto Campo Alegre onder leiding
    van Félix Martínez. Metales y cuerdas: Orquesta Egrem. Van meet
    af aan een pakkende elpee, een stuk Cuba op z’n best..

    A voice you recognize from thousands, so fresh and bright, that
    is the one of Celina Gonzalez. No matter what song she picks, it
    always sounds wonderful. On this record from 1986 she appears
    with Conjunto Campo Alegre led by Félix Martínez. Metales y
    cuerdas: Orquesta Egrem. From beginning to end a stunning
    album, a piece of Cuba at its very best..

    Septeto Nacional, front

    Areito label 1987

    My buddy René went to Cuba with his daughter, they
    travelled around for two weeks and came home with
    some real nice lp’s. Take this one by Septeto Nacional
    de Ignacio Pi؜ñeiro, I fell for it straight away. What a
    stunning record, the son is just breathtaking. I don’t
    know about you, better get it and listen instantly,
    once you’ve heard it there’s no turning back.
    Thank you so very much René,
    you’re the best..

    Arsenio Rodríguez, front

    One of the key figures in latin music was this great man.
    Arsenio Rodríguez is considered father of the modern afro-cuban
    sound. His musical roots lay in the Congolese rituals of his
    family, instilled in him by his grandfather who was a slave,
    and it is said that he brought many of the toques used to
    adress deities into son. He was a predigious composer –
    his sones remain dominant in the repertoire – and his group,
    which he expanded with first congas and later an extra trumpet,
    more percussion and piano, became the most influential of the
    1940’s. Rodríguez also changed the structure of son, expanding
    the montuno with a descarga section of improvised solos.
    Arsenio Rodríguez ( 1911 – 1970 ) was blind from age eight,
    he was kicked by a horse. He was a superb tres player and one
    of Cuba’s all time great bandleaders and son composers. Arsenio
    grew up in a ‘solar’, a small neighbourhood community. It was his
    custom to play the guitar, his neighbours would join in both
    vocally and instrumentally, using sticks, pieces of chairs, boxes
    or anything they could find to create a musical sound. On such
    a night, someone used a cowbell as their contribution to this
    primitive music and it was from this that the cowbell evolved as
    part of the instrumentation of today’s Latin-American rhythm
    sections. ( Rough Guide and backsleeve )
    Congolese composer Grand Kalle was called the father of rumba,
    he became inspired by Cuban artists like Arsenio Rodríguez, so now
    we can see the circle close, afro-cuban getting round and round.
    tracks like Independence cha cha and Africa Boogaloo are typical
    examples, from Congo to Cuba and back,
    music works miracles don’t you think..
    listen to Arsenio Rodríguez,
    ( do we hear Monguito
    there ? )

    Carlos Embale, front

    Rumba is pure Afro-Cuban music for only voices and percussion.
    It began with harber workers singing and dancing in their spare
    time in the docks of Havana and Matanzas, playing rhythms on
    cargo boxes. It comes in three styles, Guaguancó, Yambú and
    Columbia. Carlos Embale is one of the main performers of the
    guaguancó style, enjoy this rare LP.
