This CD recaptures the very personal rumba style of Luis Frank Arias, 'El Macry', who never fails to surprise with his proverbial versatility. Adjacent to los Solares de Cayo Hueso, in the centre of Havana, day by day he feeds on rumba; this district is one of the treasures of this kind in Cuba. This disc is also a tribute to two great figures of rumba and masters of the Cuban tumbadora (Conga drums), famous in Cuba and worldwide: ArÃstides Soto 'Tata gÃ¼ines' and Miguel 'AngÃ¡', who, sadly, both died recently. The track 'Requiem for Tata and AngÃ¡' is especially dedicated to their memory. On this CD, and from our own view, we have journeyed through the different styles which have gone to make up the complex of rumba: YambÃº and Columbia in 'De Chama', Macuta in 'Hace Falta', GuaguancÃ³ in various tracks, Conga in 'Deja que te Toque Llorar' and we made a very respectful approach to AbakuÃ¡ ritual music with a track which demonstrates its rhythms and antiphonal (alternating) melodies.
