Rumba is at the heart of Cuba; on the streets, in nightclubs, and within every home in Havana. The sound of the drum beat cannot be mistaken as it takes over every movement as you begin to dance. In order to promote the beauty of Cuba’s thriving music culture Gilles Peterson has worked with the island’s esteemed rumberos to record 12 tracks that will inevitably have you booking a flight to the Pearl of the Antilles. In association with Havana Club they have explored the roots of rumba through a three part project that includes a feature length documentary titled La Clave. For more information about La Clave including screenings see Havana Club Rumba Sessions.
