A very complete work about Cuban songs (bolero, criolla, canción...) by well-known Cristobal Díaz Ayala who purposes us his 100 best Cuban tunes of the millenium. The four-CD collection 100 Canciones Cubanas del Milenio housed in an eye-catching, oversize cigar box, sets a new standard of excellence for high-end boxed sets. The accompanying 100-page book in Spanish includes a wealth of biographical information on such celebrated Cuban musicians, singers, and composers as Benny Moré, Olga Guillot, Miguelito Valdés, and Bola de Nieve.
Among the famous groups featured are Orquesta Aragón, Lecuona Cuban Boys, Conjunto Casino, and Sonora Matancera with Celia Cruz. For those who can't get enough of the classic Cuban sound, this is an excellent, attractively packaged overview of the genre.
