AllMusic Review by

A charity album produced to raise awareness and funds for Artists Project Earth, Rhythms del Mundo: Cubano Aleman is a unique collaborative effort, fusing legendary Afro-Cuban musicians with contemporary pop songs. Recorded in Havana, the 2007 release features several members of the Buena Vista Social Club on Latin reworkings of recent chart hits from both the U.K. (Coldplay, Faithless, Kaiser Chiefs) and the U.S. (Maroon 5, Jack Johnson, Norah Jones) artists. Featuring vocals from Vania Borges, Aquila Rose, and Coco Freeman, it also includes Ibrahim Ferrer's final recording before his death, "As Time Goes By."
