      And so, after meticulously enjoying all pages of Cuba and its Music, subtitled From the First Drums to the Mambo, I recommend this book with immense pleasure. Ned Sublette knows what he is saying and how to say it, to the beat of the drum, ratifying the African in Cuban music, on and off the island.
