Este disco se destaca en la musica bailable cubana tocada como habia sido en decadas anteriores. Y mientras esta hecho con un nivel de abilidad alto, esto no es lo que me gusta a mi, y solo le doy 4 estrellas porque realmente los musicos tocan excelente.

La mitad de las canciones fueron compuestas hace cincuenta an~os, y la otra mitad suenan como su hubieran pudo haber sido compuestas en los cincuentas y sesentas. Si te buscas ese sonido clasico, te vas a gozar mucho este album, si como yo te gusta un sonido mas contemporaneo, lo vas a encontrar medio aburrido.

I don't love everything from Cubanismo--especially that cajun inspired CD, but this one i just love. Great dance music, sharp muscianship, and great arranging leads to a CD with almost every track being great. This has made it into my car cd changer, which is a big committment, eh? Anyway, if you are looking for cuban music harder than buena vista, this CD should be one of your purchases.

Great CD for fast paced cuban music. I have just started to listen to Cuban music, from Valdez to Buena Vista to these guys is a great transition. I am not going to comment on each song but this is a good cd to place in player and have people dance.
Have not heard previous cd but this one should be a good start.
Have fun listening!

They successfully recovered from their "sophomore slump" in a big way.

Nothing great here. A couple of tracks swing real good, but mostly an unspectular sample of cuban music.

Wish you were in Cuba? Then pour a rum, light a cigar, put on this disc, turn up the volume and close your eyes. If you aren't up and dancing by the end of this album then man you ain't got rhythm! This is a feel good, dance/party sound. Cubanismo have a very tight rhythm and horn section and great vocals. I recently attended a concert by Cubanismo in Taiwan. Although 99% of the people had no idea what the lyrics meant,and were probably not very familiar with this type of music the whole audience was bopping and swaying to the music throughout the concert and shouting for more at the end. They are HOT,HOT,HOT. Don't miss this band if they come to your town, a great evenings entertainment. Enjoy the disc.

This and Malembe have solidified Cubanismo! as the hottest band out of Cuba now. There are lyrics, "descargas" (jamming), talent and a lot of "sabor". And of course Alemany's fat and typically cuban trumpet soloing all over the place. With due respect to the late "tresero" and pillar of this music, this band is like Arsenio on steroids!

While Alemañy and crew demonstrate considerable talent, they do not compare to the soulful, inspired recordings by such artists as Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer, Eliades Ochoa, and Rubén González, and such collaborative projects as Buena Vista Social Club, Afro-Cuban All Stars, and Estrellas de Areito. With all due respect, Alemañy would do well to listen more closely to the artists his CD jacket dubs as overly "nostalgic".

This is an excellent cd. Alemañy is great and the band is phenomenal specially Tata Guines who is of course Tata Guines. Buy it you will not regret it. Each new recording is better than the previous, I am anxious to hear what is next
