Rhythms Del Mundo Cuba fuses hot Afro-Cuban sounds with tracks from artists such as U2, Coldplay, Sting,Radiohead, Jack Johnson and Maroon 5 as well as The Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, The Kaiser Chiefs and many others. Rhythms Del Mundo also includes music by famed Cuban singers Omara Portuondo and the last vocal recording of Afro-Cuban bolero singer, Ibrahim Ferrer, who passed away in 2005.

The album that started it all: a unique formula merging Afro-Cubano rhythms with some of the most memorable songs of the last 40 years.

Here are some reviews to give you a flavour of the album:

The Independent
“An album made with such integrity and passion that turns out as entertaining as this, is hard to resist!”

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
”Who would have thought that the Arctic Monkeys and the sound of Cuba would go together so well? Itt’s fantastic! SO GOOD!!”

The Guardian
“Radiohead and Kaiser Chiefs spark a revival with a sprinkle of Buena Vista magic. …so charming… Arctic Monkeys, so wrong it’s great!! Ibrahim Ferrer’s ‘As Time Goes By’ will be treasured, since it turned out to be his final recording before he died.”

Hamburger Abendblatt
‘Mitreißend!’ (Electrifying!)

San Fransisco Chronicle
“It proves to be an entertaining work of art done with honesty and sincerity. Rating: Wild applause.”

**** 4 STARS  indie LONDON
“One of the highlights is ‘Dancing Shoes’, a passionate blend of Sheffield and Cuba that provides a thrilling Latino-punk rock dancefloor filler. But the subtle guitars and Latin flavour of the Buena Vista musicians also works wonders with Coldplay’s ‘Clocks.”

***** 5 STARS  Beat Surrender
“Wow, this is quite possibly one of the best albums I’ve heard this year!!”

GIGWISE
”Sure, we don’t appreciate harping on, but this album puts the coffers where its mouth is, with many fabulous renditions. Ever protective of their recordings, Arctic Monkeys were so enamored by the take on ‘Dancing Shoes’ that the nod was given to this funky spunky hybrid dressed in Cuban heels that seduces the dancehall – ‘…put on your dancing shoes/ you sexy little swine…”

Metro – London
“When the Cubans make a track their own – as on Coco Freeman’s dark samba rendering of Franz Ferdinand’s ‘Matinee’ and Lele’s existentialist lounge take on Radiohead’s ‘High And Dry’, the effect is stunning!”

Metro Times – Detroit
“A CD which belongs in every music lovers heart (or under everybody’s Christmas tree)”

NDR Radio – Germany
“Die Charakteristika beider Musikstile sind nicht nur erhalten geblieben, sondern haben sich zu etwas Größerem und trotzdem wunderbar Leichtem und Unbeschwertem verbunden. – The essence of both music styles is still alive and vibrant but it jointly develops into something much bigger.”

RBB Radio – Germany
“Dies ist ein Projekt der Superlative, oft wird davon geredet, hier stimmt es. – This is the kind of project people dream about – but this time it is for real.’
