From the back cover: This collection is certainly one of the most authentic sets ever to be recorded and released in this country. It features one of the most famed native exponents of this field – Mongo Santa Maria and his Afro-Cuban group.

In thi album you will hear the group play twelve outstanding examples of "music folklorica" (folk music). Most of the material was written especially for this album by Silvestre Mendez, Valdes, Collazo, Santa Maria and Antardali. Antardali is well-known as the creator of the "batiri" rhythm.
