Los Munequitos De Matanzas

After nearly a half century as one of Cuba's most popular rhumba bands, los Munequitos De Matanzas have been steadily making their presence felt in North America. Tours of the United States in 1992, 1996, 1998, and 1999 have established the group as one of Cuba's finest exports.

An exciting troupe of dancers, drummers, and vocalists, los Munequintos De Matanzas were conceived by young musicians who began beating a rhythm on dishes and bottles while listening to a song by Arsenio Rodriguez in a bar in Barrio Marina, Matanzas, Cuba. The group remains rooted in the Abakwa (Efik/Efo) traditions of Africa.

Los Munequintos De Matanzas are led by general director, dancer, and guagua player Diosdado Ramos Cruz and musical director; composer; and quinto, cajon, Iya bata, and percussion player Jesus Alfonso Miro. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

...AND THEN...last night (April 5, 2011) their final performance in San Francisco was possibly the greatest concert I've EVER seen. INSANELY mind-blowing 20 minute finale that threated to disintegrate the building. Again: THE greatest rumberos on the planet.
The best rumberos on the planet. We had the honor of meeting, studying with, seeing and hearing the group ON THE DAY OF THEIR 40th ANNIVERSARY during their visit to San Francisco in 1992. As the drummers jammed, the lead singers were six inches from my ear teaching me the lyrics to song I'd been listening to for 20 years on records. Do you know what it's like to spend two hours in heaven? I do.
