Chango in the Dark

For Cosme and Damian

True fans of Afro-Cuban jazz and folk music will love this CD! Recommended to students of Afro-Cuban folklore and music. (Jazz review)

This music combines the passion of religious chants, the authentic swing of caribean tradition and the masculine solidity of jazz with the authentic attraction of the mix of that whole. (Jazz Nu)
