Rhythms Del Mundo : Cuba

Rhythms del Mundo is a nonprofit collaborative album, which fuses an all-star cast of Cuban musicians including Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo of the the Buena Vista Social Club with tracks from US, UK and Irish artists such as U2, Coldplay, Sting, Jack Johnson, Maroon 5, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs and others.

About Rhythms Del Mundo: Cuba

Artists' Project Earth (APE), a group committed to bringing about awareness of environmental disasters, climate change, and related challenges, spearheaded Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba. The compilation CD pairs a roster of wellknown British pop/rock stars with a number of Cuban musicians billed as the Buena Vista Sound (after the muchcelebrated Buena Vista Social Club, some of whose members are featured here, notably Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo). Conceived and produced by Kenny Young, Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba seems to have been recorded separately: the musicians recording versions of hit songs in Cuba and the Brits laying down the vocals afterward in either London or Barcelona (according to the engineering credits, at least). It's a little bizarre to hear "Clocks" (Coldplay) and "She Will Be Loved" (Maroon 5) get the Cuban treatment, granted, but it's curious all the same. Then there are a pair of Coco Freeman performances, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (U2) and "High and Dry" (Radiohead), that are especially bizarre, as they incorporate not the bands themselves, but rather samples of the original versions of the songs. In contrast, the more straightforward performances by Latin performers such as Vania Borges, Ferrer, and Portuondo are never less than pleasant, ensuring that the entire CD doesn't play like a crosscultural mashup. In the end, it's difficult to imagine who exactly is the target audience of Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba. Those who are fond of Cuban music, or Buena Vista Social Club specifically, aren't likely to spring for a compilation featuring the Arctic Monkeys or Dido, to single out a couple of the other pop stars not yet mentioned. Conversely, those who are fond of British pop/rock likely aren't going to be wild about Cuban music such as that featured here. In any event, the intention of APE was good, no question about that. For instance, the CD booklet is laden with essays about global warming, and while some of the writing seems rather polemic for the context, if not downright doomsaying in its urgency, it all is well intended and written, notably including a short piece by Al Gore related to his An Inconvenient Truth project.

VA - Rumba Congolaise AKA El Congo Brazza Kin

The buttery music on El Congo Brazza Kin (Marabi/Harmonia Mundi) evokes rather than duplicates the classic Cuban-influenced music of the Congo, which in its heyday carried more than a hint of brashness. The quasi-acoustic approach partners low-key amplified guitars with up-front percussion and vocal harmonies so soothing they make sleep seem laborious in contrast. Most of the core repertoire of songs made famous by African Jazz and African Fiesta is carried here by the Rumbanella Band. This third-generation rumba outfit was formed in 1986 by singers Madou Lebon Mulowayi and Lola Bivuatu, bassist Bolita Mzela Zimbika and guitarist Kankonde "Serpent" Joseph to keep alive the old-time Kinshasa sound. Tabu Ley Rochereau's "Kellya" gets a Hawaiian vocal lilt plus guitar arpeggios with a few slack-key-style pull-offs, while the gliding "Ngalula" probably isn't an ode to hairy female legs despite a typo to that effect in the liner notes. Rumba pioneer Wendo Kolosoy fronts his band Victoria Bakolo Miziki, bringing yodeling vocals and a dash of golden-age Ngoma label-style grit to "Botiakitembé." His reprise of his 1948 hit "Marie Louise" strains his pipes a bit, but Rumbanella fills the vocal cracks with effortless instrumentation. Veteran likembe thumb-piano virtuoso Antoine Moundanda contributes improvised song "Bounsana" about the recent civil war in the Congo that for all its loveliness feels out of place on a rumba disc, as does his "Wendo Likembé" with Kolosoy adding vocals. Think of them as added texture on a nearly flawless release.

Real Congolese rhumba had a lilting rhythm that's almost irresistible, especially when paired with harmonizing voices on top. And this, although it's new, is definitely real rhumba, not the speeded-up soukous that ruled in the '70s and '80s. The sensuous mix of Cuba and West Africa is safe in the sure hands of Rumbanella Band, a young group of musicians who are not only skillful, but imbued with the spirit of history. But this is more than a re-creation — some of the genre's early giants also perform, like Wendo Kolosoy, whose "Marie Louise" (done anew here) was one of the first Congolese rhumba records in 1948. He's wonderful with the veteran band Victoria Bakolo Miziki, but one of the joys is to hear him perform with his old friend Antoine Moundanda (who plays thumb piano) on "Wendo Likembé." This is an easy joy of a disc, quietly effervescent, going through some classics of the genre with taste and real elegance, but never forgetting that at its heart this is music for dancing. Perhaps, in the long wake of Buena Vista Social Club, this music is due for a real revival — and this mix of old and young musicians might well be rhumba's Buena Vista. It's certainly every bit as glorious and luscious.
