Time Out says
The rightful heir to the Buena Vista Social Club legacy, pianist Fonseca had the daunting job of filling his hero the late, great Ruben Gonzalez's shoes. He ended up becoming the star of the show. Now a solo artist in his own right, he takes in traditional African, Brazilian and Cuban music alongside a vibrant, panoramic mix of whistle-able tunes and euphoric improvising. Cape Verdean singer Andrade provides sensual support with her rhythmic take on Cuban/Brazilian sounds.
