Sintesis' Orishas is a stunning blend of Cuban music, African rhythms and rock & roll. The group was allowed to record the album in America, which was an unusual occurrence, considering the political differences between America and Cuba. As a result, Orishas has an edgier, nearly avant-garde bent to its music, and the result is a wonderful, challenging record that captures the true spirit of the term "world music."
