The cuban music has its roots in numerous other countries such as in Africa, Congo and Carabalí. Gilles Peterson, with a global idea, converged to those roots, met up with experienced and esteemed rumba musicians also known as rumberos and recorded what is essential in the rumba music. The three rumba key styles or the three rhythms were recorded along with the significance of each and those authentic sounds were handed to a pack of extremely talented producers throughout the world.

Also featuring Max Graef, Glenn Astro, Poirer and other great producers.
