about

West African and Venezuelan inspired dancefloor 45 from Cyril Diaz. Limited to 500 copies.--- Return of Cyril Diaz sees the 50's bandleader play the roots music of his Afro-Venezuelan parentage. His father Gordon Diaz migrated to Trinidad sometime in the early 1900's.

Throughout the 1950's Cyril Diaz and his big band calypso orchestra toured the Caribbean and South America recording culturally inspired hybrid calypsos with an african and latin tinge. Showcased here is his fascination with west african shango on "Mme Killio" and the cuban derived but venezuelan made rumba on "Lena."
