AllMusic Review by

Rubalcaba's follow-up to Mi Gran Pasion couldn't have been more unlike its predecessor. Musicians from a country where the phones don't work are set down in a high-tech German studio. It's strident, sprawling, and brilliant. World music? This is it. Dissonant counterpoint worthy of an Austrian, percussion that only a Cuban could play -- and the excitement of a young world-class pianist still learning to control his power.
