Rezos Y Cantos Guajiros Review

by John Storm Roberts

The guajiros are the smallholders of Cuba, and their music has a lot of Spain left in it, albeit heavily influenced by Africa. Celina Gonzalez has always been considered the best woman singing in the style, and though her recent albums have been overproduced, her early ones with the brilliant tres player Reutilio were close to the source. This one, newly re-released as a CD, is an undisputed classic.
