Cuban and Latin folk music is one long love story between the Spanish guitar and the African drum!
From guaguancó - which is regarded as beeing mother Cuban folk music - styles like rumba, son and danzón were developed
The influence of American jazz in the 1920s led to the modern sentimental bolero which much later, was beautifully exposed worldwide by Buena Vista Social Club.
This first album from La Vaca de Mala Leche will offer several examples of this heritage.
The group's name means 'the cow with the bad milk' and is a reference to Cuba - by Cubans themselves - about their nation with a fair amount of irony.
During the summer of 2010 the band performed at folk and jazz festivals in Denmark.
This with such great success, that a venue hired the orchestra for a recurrent monthly themed gig called 'Cuban Night', which relives the almost forgotten tradition of presenting house bands, which was essentially linked with the Cuban genres 'back in the days.'
The group is formed by Danish musicians and typically feature guest musicians from around the world. With a great deal of respect for the great masters of Cuban folk music, La Vaca de Mala Leche celebrates life and dance on their self-titled debut album.
