Lots of others still.  Nicholas Menheim is from Senegal but  is pure afro cuban son based. Actually one of my all time favourites form this genre " Commandante Che Guevara" is the title.   Africando actually, menheim is with them now are an African,Latin combo doing Afro Cuban material. They have been around a while now.

No problemo,   ...not finished with the list yet.
I love Afro-Cuban piano, I used to play in a Latin rock band and I got to try out some montuno licks on a few tunes. I'd like to think I did OK, maybe not, ha ha.

Looks like Slava is going to add Meinheim.
You do seem to know a lot of music, I suspect you are actually 3 people.

Thanks Slava..I will do the bio if you like but it will take me away from reviewing for a short while. I know that we need heaps of  them. Actually really enjoying them. Never have I done so many Smile It is the diversity of course. Afro Cuban one day, Dub Fusion the next. Ekstasis is the project today hoping to get it finished before the kids arriveSmile

It's up to you - we have plenty of artists without bios there,one day we will need bios for them all. Not a problem at all if one more artist will stay "bio-less" for a while.Smile
