After his first trip to Cuba in 1998, Gustavo Cereijo began a musical journey that ultimately culminated in the creation of this album. Having met with members of legendary Cuban band Juan De Marcos and The Afro Cuban All Stars at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Gustavo was inspired by their mix of old and young musicians, and embarked on a project with the ambition of bringing his Australian salsa band Chukale together with veteran Cuban singers and instrumentalists.

In 2009, Chukale began writing and recording tracks in traditional Cuban rhythms, as well as modern afro-cuban styles, Puerto Rican-infused salsa and latin jazz. After 2 trips to Cuba recording with some of Cuba’s most esteemed musical elders as well as upcoming talent, Gustavo was able to realise a dream with the completion of this diverse and encompassing musical project.

Featuring 30 musicians from 6 different countries this album celebrates a remarkable expedition, and is a first of it’s kind - bringing Australian and Cuban artists together in a musical document of significant importance.
