Gregorio Hernández, founder and teacher of the Cuban National Folklore Ensemble, dancer, singer and percussionist, he is one of the best known rumberos in the Cuban music field. During several years he has been director of his group where he recreates rumba fusing it with other instruments, among which the piano stands out.
His record gives a panorama of the rumba throughout its history. “El Goyo" was the producer of this selection with the assistance of the musicologist Helio Orovio and the performance of the most genuine representatives of this genre.
