Digital Booklet
For nearly 60 years, cultural and economic exchange between the United States and Cuba was hindered and hobbled as a result of the US embargo on trade and travel. Influence from each country managed to seep through to the other, but only with the restoration of diplomatic connections in December 2014 did it become possible for real cooperation to occur. Less than one year later, PARMA Recordings arranged the first of its recording projects in Havana, producing this diverse album of works for big band, small jazz combo, choir and chamber ensembles performed by current or former members of the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba, the Buena Vista Social Club, Irakere and many more.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
