AfroCubism is the long-awaited collaboration between Cuban and Malian musicians meant to take place when the Buena Vista Social Club was born, a "collaboration well worth the wait," says The New Yorker. The New York Times describes it as "a rich yet subtle fusion of African and Cuban sounds." The Guardian calls it "an elegant, gently exquisite album"; the Observer says it's "a delight."

The band is making an all-too-short tour of the United States and one of their four stops is right here in Portland:

  • Oregon Zoo Concert
  • Friday, July 8, 7:00pm
  • Tickets on sale now
