released just in time for 2019’s biting winter chill, here’s a delightful blast of latin american sunshine to make you tear off your hat & scarf & beg for an icy mojito.

this is the soundtrack to ‘A Tuba To Cuba’, the critically acclaimed documentary film that follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfil his late father's dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. Jaffe said of ‘Kreyol’ from the soundtrack: “I’ve always been taken by the tempo at which people stroll, like New Orleans, there’s a very particular rhythm to their walk. That rhythm was the inspiration for ‘Kreyol’”. this album is a must for fans of Buena vista social club & gilles Peterson pronouncements.
