Cuban All Stars


Productsdescription:

Listen to wonderful music and at the same time, as a bonus so to speak, win a fantastic flight: the “Cuban All Stars” can make it happen. Each copy of this compilation includes a leaflet telling the buyer how to win a fantastic prize – a flight to Havana! Just send a mail to Termidor Musikverlag and you will automatically be included in the draw which will take place after the 100 000th entry to Termidor’s Mail Info Service. If fortune smiles on you, you the lucky winner will shortly afterwards be sitting in a plane to Cuba; there you will meet Pio Leiva whom many will know from the movie “Buena Vista Social Club”. The famous singer of the group Soneros de Verdad will welcome you and host a dinner for you. Wow! If you have never been to Havana before (really San Cristóbal de La Habana) then you really must look at the beautiful sights of the capital of Cuba. They attract more and more tourists all the time, and with good reason. The traveller to the metropolis of two million inhabitants certainly mustn’t miss the Malecon Promenade or the El Morro fortress which flank the harbour. Hemingway’s favourite bars “Floridita” and “Bodeguita del Medio” are also a must. The Botanical Gardens, the Revolution Museum, the Miramar Aquarium and the legendary Tropicana night club, where Frank Sinatra and Josephine Baker once appeared, are also popular attractions. The old town, which UNESCO has declared part of the world cultural heritage, awaits the globetrotter with splendid buildings in Spanish colonial style. And finally the compulsory detour to one of the many cigar factories (e.g. Upmann) tells the visitor more about one of Cuba’s most important exports. So you see: the city founded in 1515 by Diego de Velázquez is definitely worth a journey. Doesn’t that sound good?

With the “Cuban All Stars” the Termidor Musikverlag is launching a series of nine CDs which will offer the best musicians from the sugar cane, rum and tobacco island a platform to present themselves.  This seventy-minute introductory album assembles the most notable stars from the Cuban music scene.  It starts off with the great Compay Segundo, member of the Buena Vista Social Club, and his unforgotten evergreen “Chan Chan”.  Cesar Pedroso, who for more than ten years was the pianist for Los Van Van and delivered hits to famous artists such as Celia Cruz, brings us the high-spirited track “Que Cosa Tiene La Vida”.  With “Bongo Se Fue Pa'l Congo” (no. 1 in the Cuban charts) Tiburon Morales spreads good feelings and gets us dancing.  Pio Leiva, mentioned at the beginning, who has recorded more than a hundred records in his long career, presents his successful piece “Cuando Ya No Me Quieras”.  “Macoris” by percussionist Patato Valdes is a prime example of the genre of Cuban jazz.  Rudy Calzado, also indefatigable in his seventh decade, invites us to sing along with his catch-tune “Kikiriki”.  And last but not least Juan Pablo Torres presents Glenn Miller’s classic “Moonlight Serenade” in a fascinating Latin version.

In the booklet to the CD the musicians are all portrayed individually.  And also those keen to know more can read a short chronology of Cuban musical history, from the pioneer days at the end of the 15th century (Columbus discovered the Caribbean island in 1492) right up to the latest Cuba boom which began at the end of the 20th century.
