The Dynamite Combination Of Cuba And Mali

Today Skempi News brings you another treat from Cuban soil in the form of AfroCubism, the award-winning and Grammy-nominated album which featured musical collaborations between musicians from Cuba and Mali. Released in 2010, the musicians featured on the album had previously built successful careers for themselves, either as members of the immortal Cuban musical ensemble Buena Vista Social Club or as solo artists.

AfroCubism features rhythms inherent to traditional West African and Afro-Cuban music and was recorded in a studio in Madrid, Spain while mixing and mastering took place in studios in England. In addition to its fame as an album, this musical collaboration also garnered much success as a world tour.

Enjoy one of their world tour performances during a festival in Spain below:

Gerson Eleonora (1987) has a passion for writing, whether it be short stories, poems or the biographies, reviews and music articles displayed here on the site. He is an aficionado of everything Caribbean, it’s almost as if salt water runs through his veins.
