reencarnacion.gif (40845 bytes) "... a virtuoso group of musicians loyal to traditional rhythms but devoid of nostalgia, forging a modern Cuban music which never leaves the clave or loses sight of the great Cuban dance rhythms which have influenced the world since the 1930s." (from: The Rosebud Agency)

"These guys are great, period. Can Jes˙s Alema˝y be the worlds greatest living trumpet player? Their first two cd's concentrated on Arsenio Rodriguez and his peers. This cd focuses on the next generation. If you can, get to see these guys perform live. You'll see why this band is a treasure and why you should kneel in the presence of el gran Rolo Martinez." (from: Descarga.com about their '98 album)
