Manolo Guardia - Negro en sol menor (Uruguay, 1960s)

(Fermata 3F0128).

Candomble beleives and culture, originated from african voduns and musically based on drums, are widespread in Brazil, but also traveled south down to Uruguay, where exist also expressions of this religion.
Successful meeting of jazz and candomble rhythms is not so common, so I hope you enjoy this track from Manolo Guardia, uruguayan pianist both interested in jazz and tango, and who experimented unique afrolatinjazz fusion during the 60s.
