AllMusic Review by

Born in Cuba, once New York-based, violinist De la Fe has fetched up in Medellin. Wherever he has been he has mined an avant-tipico vein based solidly in charanga, but given cutting-edge reach by his own space-cadet five-string -- and in this case, synthesized -- fiddling. The combination of intense swing and musical outreach is a little reminiscent of Eddie Palmieri.
