2019 marks the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, when the Cuban way won hearts, minds, and ears across Africa. This album is the soundtrack to a time when Cuban music was the future for 1970s Senegal. Changüí, Guajira, Salsa, and Son mingle with cosmic Mbalax guitars, Sabar rhythms, Afro-Latin horns, and Spanish vocals spiced with a Senegalese twang. The finest gumbo of Cuban and Senegalese sounds. With just two microphones and a four-track Revox tape recorder, Star Band recorded their entire catalog in Dakar's iconic Miami nightclub. Each album contained one stand-out Afro-Cuban tune. Six of Star Band's most psychedelic Afro-Cuban tracks, an ode to their finest hour, are selected here.
