Product Details

Mambo Calypso is a new volume of sonic Caribbean cruise. Following the approach of the first volume and understanding the Caribbean as a region is not limited to a strictly-geographical demarcation but rather a demographic and cultural space where countries, islands and coastal areas may fall into a common Mare Nostrum even encompasses New Orleans. The influence of the African drum and the "Cuban clave" makes different music beyond it's specific components. No matter if the musicians be Latinos, Anglos or Frenchies, they all belong to a certain same family. This is not a coincidence, since the slave trade brought African music from the port of Havana to Cartagena de India's, Nassau, Port-au-Prince, Salvador de Bahia and the southern United States. The same Blackness, the same rhythm, the same festive mood, spirit of resistance and struggle is consistent across the board. And so, Arsenio Rodriguez can be heard next to the calypso of Blind Blake, Pacho Galan's coastal cumbia crosses over with Dave Bartholomew's mambo, and the Latin swing of Lalo Guerrero sits next to the Dominican merengue sounds of Joseito Mateo, in line with that of Haitian neighbor Nemour Jean Baptiste. This collection comprises a very spicy musical "melting pot," a gumbo of percussion and languages to enjoy and to dance to.
