AllMusic Review by

This cassette is as rare-as-worm's-teeth secular street rumba: it's intricate and precise ensemble percussion with Afrocentric call-and-response vocals. Traditionally it's with no other instruments, though The Grupo Matancero (led by Papin, of Los Papines fame) has a few cuts with full band, but is mostly straight rumba, including a fine female lead singer.
