SONG OF THE DAY Cyril Diaz & His Orchestra – Taboo

Courtesy of the great Soundway records (yet again), I was first introduced to the exotic sounds of Cyril Diaz & His Orchestra nearly two years ago when I featured Voodoo at the end of May 2015.

Originating from 1950’s Trinidad, Cyril Diaz was renowned for the “rich and smooth tone” of his tenor sax playing, creating fine Cuban-calypso sounds and traditional Latin tunes with his music.

In 2011 Soundway Records reissued one of the bands EP’s titled, Voodoo, which is where today’s song comes from.  This EP consisted of four instrumental tracks, all of which were inspired by traditional Cuban styles, Haitian and Trinidadian Latin music.

Listen to the fantastic Taboo above and check out the rest of the EP here.
