Buena Vista Social Club - The enormously popular Grammy Award-winning CD of
classic popular Cuban music produced by Ry Cooder. This CD revived the careers
of several neglected veterans and opened international stages to these excellent
musicians not well known outside Cuba. Very refined, yet deeply funky. This is the
CD that started it all. Extraordinary. $19.98



Ibrahim Ferrer - Lead singer from the Buena Vista Social Club now in his
own album. He was shining shoes in Havana when Ry Cooder found him
to join the group and revive his exquisite talent. Hardly anyone can belt out
a soulful bolero like Ferrer. Many say this CD is better than the original
Buena Vista Social Club CD. This is the golden voice of Cuban music.
Weather-beaten voice with engaging elegance and poignancy. Cuba's Nat
King Cole. $19.98


Ruben Gonzalez - Debut album by one of Cuba's national treasures.
Made over fifty years after his first classic recordings with the great
Arsenio Rodriguez. Recorded live with no overdubs in two days in
Havana. A dazzling and spontaneous display of inspired piano playing.
Part of the Buena Vista Social Club group. Fantastic, magical. $17.98

Afro Cuban All Stars - Four generations of 15 of Cuba's most brilliant musicians come together in a Havana

trumpet is made up from Havana's celebrated Tropicana Orchestra. Superlative rhythm section combines
'Cachaito' on bass, with percussionists including Miguel "Anga" and Julienne Oviedo, the hottest of Cuba's
new young stars. An instant classic. $17.98

Orishas "A Lo Cubano" - The Orishas, a Cuban group based in France, use Afro-Cuban religion to
summon the spirit of hip-hop. Named for gods of Santeria, they came together in 1998 through a cultural
exchange program between French and Cuban rappers. Collaborating with French hip-hop producer Miko
Niko, they bring the attitude of Havana streets to the rest of the world, appealing to the Buena Vista Social
Club crowd as well as the hip-hop heads. The sound of sacred Santeria beats and traditional
son weaving
through sharp-edged lyrical attacks with groove-heavy bass and drum tracks make for a cool joyride
through the back streets of Havana. $16.98

National Geographic Destination: Cuba - This collection of Cuban music, performed by Cuba's most
famous bands and musicians, is a great starting point to capture the essence of the island nation.
From an alluring land of tropical beaches, crumbling art deco architecture, and king-size 1950s
American cars, Cuba's music is as steamy and exotic as its tropical nights. This music conveys the
constant change throughout Cuba's history, the many cultures that have shaped the country, and the
wide-open future that lies ahead. Tito Puente to Omara Portuondo to Pio Leyva and many others.
