AllMusic Review by

Fiesta de la Rumba is an earthy, organic collection dominated by traditional percussion and expressive vocalists. While the guaguancó style receives the most time, the set also includes takes on the columbia and yambú styles. Standouts include the multiple contributions from Carlos Embales and Celeste Mendoza; but the best tracks are the four vibrant performances by Los Munequitos de Matanzas, each featuring their trademark percussion skills.
