"The fact that Arctic Monkeys allowed their music to be included on a compliation, much less re-worked by other musicians speaks volumes regarding the overall care for and talent involved in this release."
In addition to the U.S. and U.K. artists, the CD includes some of the biggest stars in Cuban music. This includes a vocal recording from Ibrahim Ferrer, a certified legend, who - sadly - passed away in 2005.
Profits from this CD benefit Artists Project Earth, an environmental charity that supports natural disaster relief.
Rhythms Del Mundo is a rare opportunity for Latin music to gain exposure outside of its normal confines. If you like any of the artists on the track list, you will surely love this CD.
