The Rhythmagic Orchestra which plays Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz wouldn't perhaps qualify as world music for purists. They are mostly Londoners with an affection for the music of the greats of the style and come from bands like the Heliocentrics (who recently recorded with Ethiopian composer Mulatu Astake) and Jazz Jamaica.
But they bring so much talent, respect and enthusiasm to the music that their self-titled debut sounds like it has been beamed in from a Cuban dance club in the Fifties.
Lotta fun, worth seeking out.
