Bayuba Cante - Cheba

Bayuba Cante is a band of excellent musicians from eclectic and diverse musical backgrounds with a single aim in mind: keeping alive the African Yoruba tradition still found in Cuba. They remain true to the tradition, while using modernized musical styles. This Afro-Cuban music combines many different styles of music, being African, of course, Cuban, Latin, Brazilian, jazz, funk, flamenco, including Indian music. Each of the musicians brings to the band an expertise that make this most colorful music the most fascinating. Also the range of instruments used is as fascinating, being the cello, the Indian bansuri, the Iranian daf, and many more unusual instruments. Simply unique! - by Bruno Deschenes, AMG
