Various - Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 2



Si Para Usted Vol 2
Various - Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 2
(CD) Waxing Deep WAX003, 2009-07

Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 2 takes up where the first volume left off with another a fully-licensed compilation of Cuban funk, jazz, psych, son, and soul from the last four decades. All the tracks are remastered from the original tapes. Highlights include the deep funk of Safari Salvaje by Los Rápidos, a mesmerising funk workout from an obscure band that in the 70s won the Cuban equivalent of American Idol; Al Sonar la Hora, a funk-rock classic from Los Barba who, despite being one of Cuba's most popular bands ever, never recorded a single LP; and Vanguardia y Juventud by Sonopop, absurdly unlikely party music from teenaged members of the Communist Youth Militia.
