I never thought I'd buy CD's from the World Music section, but once in a while, you hear tracks that make it worth your while.
About the time of the late Kirsty MacColl's tragic accident, BBC Radio 2 were broadcasting a series she'd nearly completed for the station on Cuban music, and I saw a video on "Buena Vista Social Club". Both opened me up to Cuban music, some by old performers, and groups that broke up years ago - as is the case with Los Zafiros.
"Bossa Cubana" is an example of a 1960's Cuban band with a unique hybrid style - doo-wop, calypso, bossa nova, and traditional Cuban music. There are some stand out tracks on the CD, including "La Luna en tu Mirada" and "Dichoso Mar". The group, and this CD, offer something that is a little different than other groups and records - certainly a unique collection. Adding this to a CD/record collection, whether your only Cuban album, or one of several in a World Music collection, would be adding something unusual. A one off!

Zeitgeist of 60s Cuba 10 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an extraordinary soundtrack to Sixties Havana from an extraordinary band. The CD is beautifully packaged with great sleeve notes. Unfortunately, the CD is missing "Hermosa Havana", the best Zafiros track in my opinion, but this is still an outstanding disc.

A must have 23 July 1999
By L. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These guys are amazing. The music -- a fusion of salsa, bossa nova, doo-wop, R&B and more -- is great, and surprisingly sophisticated. The vocals are fantastic -- and the tenor (soprano?) of Ignacio Elejalde blows away Frankie Lymon or any other doo-wop legend you can name.

awesome 7 Jun 2000
By lucy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
awesome cd. Brought back lots of memories. Sometimes we forget how rich our culture really is. I use to listen to them a lot back home in my native Cuba. I even know all of the songs by heart. It is a pity that Hermosa Havana is not included, but is excellent anyway. By the way, saw the movie about them in Miami a while back.

shimmering beats, soaring vocals... 15 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
who would have thought that a strange beast called 'cuban doo-wop' could possibly be this good? but it is! i defy anyone with a sense of hearing not to be overwhelmed by the infectious rhythms and fabulous harmonies of this woefully neglected group.
