Notes Originally issued as compact disc.
Represented in this collection are the four major divisions of Afro-Cuban culture: Lucumi, Arara, Abakua, and Kongo. All but one of the selections are drawn from field and studio recordings made in Cuba. Some were recorded in Cabildos, associations formed by free and enslaved blacks from the same African "nation", some of which have survived to this day. Also represented are the major varieties of rumba, music of the Haitian-Cubans, and examples of carnival music from Santiago de Cuba and Havana.
