Ry Cooder, Manuel Galbán – Mambo Sinuendo

Sold out
Condition: Brand New


Ry Cooder's collaboration with late Cuban guitar legend Manuel Galbán began in the late 1950s, when Cuban pop music began to fuse with American pop jazz and the futuristic creations of modern Cuban composers. Carried by the mambo and cha-cha-cha fever from the middle of the century, the hot sounds of mambo jazz spread throughout American popular culture

But nowhere is there a more perfect representation of this style than in the recordings of Havana doo-wop quartet Los Zafiros, still the most popular Cuban vocal group of all time after 50 years. As guitarist and arranger of Los Zafiros, Galbán has developed a hard, rocky guitar style that Cuban musicians consider unique in their music. With Mambo Sinuendo Galbán introduced himself in a new way - as an exceptional pianist, organist and guitarist.
