CD Reviews

The Masterpiece of Masterpieces
Miguel Gonzalez | OAK PARK, IL United States | 07/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly one of the all-time great recordings of the 20th century. It captures the "Bembe" ritual from start to finish of the Santeria religion, from which much of Cuba's music derived. The percussion is driven by a trio of drummers playing the Bata drums - Iya, Omele and Okonkolo, which together conjure polyrhythms whose origins are distinctly African ... specifically Yoruban from what is now Nigeria. Any serious student of Afro-Cuban music *must* purchase this recording. And note the value of used discs (today listed at $69.99); this is a rare and much-sought-after recording that was once only available on vinyl. Get it while it's re-issued. Because it's bound to drop back out of print. And you'll have to pay a hefty premium."

"CONTAINS MOST OF THE ORISHAS CHANTS IN AN EXCELLENT RECORDING. THE CHORUS RESEMBLES THOSE IN THE YORUBA TRIBE IN ANCIENT TIME A MOST TO BUY."
