Queens of Havana
Bought some books today at The Strand. Food and music dominated the bag.

One is a revelation for me, equally for the contents and the subject.

Poster from Anacaona's 1958 South American tour

Anacaona, an all female Cuban son band that started in the 1930s. Included with the book is a 6 song cd and I had to admit that until I read more detail about them I thought that there were probably men who took crucial parts (bongos, conga, trumpet) with them in the studio. I apologize ladies, particularly Ondina, trumpeter extraordiaire, for doubting you ladies could play so hot as well as sing so sweetly.

Thank you for the add. Although I love many styles of music I don't do many journal entries about it but you are welcome to read what random mind debris I do post from time to time.
