Matanzas might be the great African city of the New World. It is the cradle of much of what we think of as Cuban culture - the rumba, the danzon, and the African religions of Cuba. Matanzas is the home of the greatest rumba group in history: Los Munequitos de Matanzas, six of whose albums I released on Qbadisc and three of which I produced. Though Havana can swallow you up, I always make at least a day trip to Matanzas to visit Los Munequitos.
