Vocalist-percussionist Angel d’Cuba is, as his name suggests, a native Cuban. But even before defecting to the U.S. and settling in Chicago, he began absorbing myriad influences from beyond his island home. On Heritage, his confident handling of salsa shows d’Cuba’s command of that heritage, even as he ventures down several tangents by incorporating rock guitar into Afro-Caribbean rhythms and playing with Latino polka, as well as doing less-than-convincing stabs at singing R&B. His band is tight, honed from many nights together on stage.
