On this Grammy-nominated 2007 outing, the Havana-based ensemble Cubanismo! presents another immediately engaging collection of Afro-Cuban tunes. Like the style's elder statesmen, Buena Vista Social Club, the group largely adheres to a vintage sound with deft piano lines, boisterous horn flourishes, and busy rhythms complementing vibrant vocals, as on the festive numbers "Petit Mambo" and "Celebrando."
