Cuban dance floor cuts from ’75-’85 collected in new Soul Jazz comp

Latin and salsa styles mixed with funk, jazz, and disco.

A new compilation exploring dance called Culture Clash In Havana Cuba – Experiments In Latin Music 1975-85 Vol. 2 is being released by Soul Jazz Records this October.

Across 3xLP, the collection “explores the many styles that came out of Cuba in the 1970s-1980s, as Latin and salsa mixed with heavy doses of jazz, funk, and disco to create some of the most dance-floor friendly music ever made,” shares the label.

Curated by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker, it marks the second instalment in the series following volume 1. Both releases feature music from the book Cuba: Music and Revolution: Original Cover Art of Cuban Music: Record Sleeve Designs of Revolutionary Cuba 1959-90.
