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.

Cantos de Cuba sounds like vintage '50s Cuban tracks by Celina González and Reutilio Dominguez, unearthed in their original form and untouched by any modern sound restoration technology. The sound is very thin, very compressed, and often cluttered by the backing group of pianist Obdulio Morales. You can't hear the distinctive vocal harmonies of Dominguez, González's partner until 1963, as well as you'd like.
