Salsa Africana! Hugo Mendez

A short and sweet selection of deep Latin sounds from West Africa – Cuban covers and original tracks from Senegal, Mali, Congo and Burkina Faso. Cuban music has always been popular in Africa, and the re-interpretation of standard songs and melodies give them something a little bit extra…please excuse the crackles, the records were well-loved before they turned up at Sofrito towers!

Check out some beautiful Afro-Cuban sounds below…
