Tumba Francesa la Caridad de Oriente is a 140-year old institution in Cuba. The music of Tumba Francesa is a combination of African drums and French patois vocals alive in Cuba.

'Afro Cuba: Tumba Francesca' is the first in a series of albums reflecting Afro-Cuban culture newly recorded by SOUL JAZZ RECORDS in Cuba.

The Tumba Francesa La Caridad de Oriente won Cuba's National Award for Community Culture and, in 2003, the title of UNESCO Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, the first such award to be bestowed on Cuba.

This music was recorded in EGREM STUDIOS, the state owned studio in Santiago, eastern Cuba. Tumba Francesa la Caridad de Oriente is situated in the economically poor Los Hoyos district of the city, a vibrant epi-centre of Afro-Cuban culture.

The music of Tumba Francesa la Caridad de Oriente is at once both modern and traditional, both an important aspect of contemporary Cuba & comes with a vast cultural legacy.

The CD comes complete with extensive sleeve-notes and spoken introduction by the Afro-Cuban poet and writer PEDRO PEREZ-SARDUY and photography by the New York writer, musician and broadcaster NED SUBLETTE.
