Beny Moré is Cuba's favorite and most iconic vocalist whose influence was central to what we call salsa, a legacy still felt today. Beny occupies a unique position not only in the history of Cuba's music but also in the socio-political and cultural life of the island because despite major differences between detractors and believers in Castro's revolution, they can all agree he was the greatest sonero (improvising vocalist) of all, the original 'El Sonero Mayor'. Moré's appeal was, and remains, international, making him a trans-national ambassador of Caribbean Latin culture. Comes on 140g double viny in 350g cardboard, reverse side print sleeve.
