Putumayo Presents Cuba
Putumayo (www.putumayo.com)

Cuban music is extremely varied, from the acoustic strumming of Los Guaracheros de Oriente to the blaring sons of Ibrahim Ferrer. In their quest for the latest in fashionable music, Putumayo has followed the tastes of collegiates and connoisseurs everywhere for this somewhat limited variety pack of Cuban sons, boleros and danzón from the last thirty years. Well written liner notes will help you learn more about the music, and prompt you to listen to more Cuban music from sources such as Qbadisc and Blue Jackel. - Brian Grosjean
