Changüí, cousin of the Cuban son, from the mountainous region of Guantanamo is emerging as Cuba's next musical revelation.
If you have only heard Cuban jazz and dance music of Havana, then you will be astonished to discover the music known as Changüí from the mountainous region of Guantanamo. These fascinating field recordings were made by renowned engineer Stuart Dietrich from a rooftop and capture the essence of Cuban folk music like never before. Complete liner notes about the music and unique traditions of the people of Guantanamo fill a gap in documenting an important genre of Cuba's multi-layered musical tradition. A remarkable digital recording.
"One of the little-known treasures of Cuban music"
