With his explosive soloing and inventive five conga patterns, Cuban musician Miguel 'Anga' Diaz was one of the world's great congueros. Anga's musical jouney has lead to him perform with the foremost experimental band in Cuba, Irakere, sojourns with innovative US jazz musicians Steve Coleman & Roy Hargrove, then back to his roots with the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Ruben Gonzalez, and opening doors with the great Cuban bassist Cachaito Lopez on his groundbreaking album 'Cachaito' and subsequent tour Anga developed upon the basis of that album on his debut release 'Echu Mingua' a unique and experimental take on classics of Cuban and Jazz repertoire, original African, DJ, contemporary Argentine, and improvised music. Anga unexpectedly died of a heart attack in 2006.
