Product Description

Product Description

'Blue Cha Cha' celebrates the life of legendary Cuban guitarist Manuel Galbán. Special guests on his final recording include Omara Portuondo, Rosa Passos, Trío Esperança, Eric Bibb, Sissoko Ballaké and Marcelo Mercadante, among others. When you first listen to 'Blue Cha Cha', what strikes you is the variety of styles that show us once again the very best of Manuel Galbán, who led a highly successful sixty-year career. He shot to notoriety as a member of the famed Los Zafiros, then astounded the world with Buena Vista Social Club and, subsequently, with Ry Cooder on their sensational 2003 album, 'Mambo Sinuendo'. For this project, there was nothing better for him than going over his career and choosing the music that meant so much to him - Afro-Cuban, bolero, Latin American, rhythm and blues - and inviting some of the biggest names from these styles to perform on the album The bonus DVD that accompanies 'Blue Cha Cha' helps the album to come to life, with interviews and a historical documentary DVD filmed in Havana, Cuba and Paris, France. Galbán, through personal anecdotes shared by his dearest friends and musical influences, reflects on his lifelong, milestone-tinged career which ultimately altered the landscape of popular Cuban music.

HASH(0x9dd84414) out of 5 stars as much for the movie 13 Feb. 2013
By Hugh Foster - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
this set contains a CD and a DVD -- both are lovely -- when I play either, I revisit the long forbidden Cuba, which I had the good fortune to see in the autumn of 2012. We need to help these folks by making travel there easier to do.

HASH(0x9dd8484c) out of 5 stars Nostalgia and Farewell 15 Aug. 2013
By Jose Torres - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Yes, the Zaflro's 5th voice, Galban's electric guitar, came back to remind us of how their music still sounds current. Galban's musicianship is unsurpassable and his playing in this recording sounds like that of an energetic young man. The arrangements are excellent and the new pieces are very contemporary. All the performers are first class. One reviewer mentioned that this CD makes her feel happy. I agree. This is happy music. Too bad Galban left us so soon. Obviously, he still had a lot of musicality and skills left in him but what a joyful way to remember him each time I play this CD.
