US Price $16.00
The dynamic Latin percussionist for Joe Jackson, Marc Ribot’s Postizos and a variety of other groups here excavates the fascinating world of Cuba’s little-known Jewish community. Roberto’s firsthand experience with both Cuban and Jewish traditions (performing at Havana Synagogues in the 1970s, and exposure to the Radical Jewish Culture Revolution in New York’s downtown community of the 1990s,) have resulted in a brilliant recording blending the two into a seamless new music. Featuring an all-star lineup, El Danzon de Moises is a CD that will make you think, make you laugh and make you dance.
