    IN MEMORY OF JG

    This album is a tribute to the spontaneity and sweetness of natural live sound. There is no modern technological trickery, simply the joy and talent of eleven musicians with acoustic instruments performing live with nothing added or taken away. Each and every performance is different and unique; in this recording you can hear the intimacy, warmth and delight shared between an audience and musicians one special evening in California.


    We wish to stay true to our musical roots like the many Cuban bands who, between the 1940s and 1960s, delivered performances and recordings with soul, groove and ‘Cubania’ live and in the moment. We have added our own contemporary feel to the traditions we have inherited so that our culture continues to evolve and grow.


    Our work is for all those who enjoy the music, those who possess nothing yet live for everything, those who are losing hope and those who humbly seek to make this a better world.
