The Island of Cuba has been the driving force in Latin American music since the early 20th century. No other country has produced so many vibrant and popular musical styles, rhythms and dances. These include son, rumba, mambo. Cha cha cha, pilon, guajira, charanga, songo and timba, to name but a few.
The Very Best Of Cuba brings you a selection of artists that represent this fantastic musical heritage. From the million-selling traditional Buena Vista artists such as Compay Segundo and Ibrahim Ferrer, to present day salsa/son/timba stars like Manolito and Maraca, and even on to the sound of tomorrow, with Cuban rapper MC Nilo Castilo, this CD has something for everyone who has ever wanted to discover the music of the beautiful island of Cuba.
