Fourteen musicians, 46 instruments, and the astonishing rhythmic variety of the Afro-Cuban culture; ingredients for a percussion fiesta. Under the joint leadership of the veteran drummer Louis Bellson and the gifted Cuban percussionist Walfredo de los Reyes, Sr., a cross-section of American and Caribbean musicians explores the expressive possibilities in the complex rhythms developed within the musical traditions of the Nañigo descendants of Carabali tribesmen taken to Cuba from the Congo. The music is rich in texture, variety, and percussive melody. Warning: the compulsion to dance may be irresistible.
