AllMusic Review by

Cardona, one of New York salsa's finest percussionists, is an initiate in the lucumi faith that traveled from West Africa to the New World. This New York recording of the songs for various orisha is part of a widespread religious practice whose local differences are mostly superficial. (Worth comparing with the Afro-Cuban anthology issued by Areito.)
