Housed in a hardcover, full-color 66-page book in French and English. "Sancti Spiritus, in the center of Cuba now appears as the place where the cultures of Spain, Canaries and Africa, all deeply rooted locally, fused into original types of music. The many genres played here, guajira, trova, guaracha, bolero and diverse types of punto like the zesty controversias, are all spiced with popular poetry, subtle rhythms and harmonies, luminous timbres of the tres and the lute. This comprehensive collection explores both these types of music as well as the musical and cultural atmosphere of the region."
