Review

Cuban vocalist, producer and arranger Dayme Arocena has strong relationship with Brownswood Recordings. She first graced the label in early 2015, and has since gone in to deliver two albums and a clutch of fine singles for Gilles Peterson's imprint. Cubafonia is Arocena's third full length, and continues in a similar vein to previous outings. It's a rich musical tapestry, with Arocena blending traditional Cuban staples (think mambo and rumba) with spiritual jazz, Rotary Connection style soul, Afro-Cuban funk, tear-jerking ballads and jazz-funk. The resultant songs - all top notch - are as steamy, humid and vibrant as you'd expect, but also boast intricate musical arrangements and top quality musicianship.
