Published on luxury paper and in full color, this hardcover volume and more than 400 pages has been produced by the team of experts at Gladys Palmera after immersing themselves among the hidden gems of the largest record archive of Cuban and Afro-Latin music in the world. This book is a tribute to that movement that shook the history of music, charged with provocation and sensuality and whose echoes echo to this day in the great figures of contemporary music.
You can dream of the mythical brass bands that shook Havana when Cuba was a party thanks to the endless rumbas that were held in the Prado and Neptuno room on the second floor of the Miami restaurant. Or fantasize about the great masters of illustration who signed covers that are really hard to find today, the work of cult authors like Jack Davis (one of the great comic artists of all time, founder of MAD magazine), who left their designs on the 10-inch discs of the Roulette and Tico Records labels.
