The best thing to come out of Cuba in recent times! So asserts Tumi label boss Mo Fini, who waxes long and rapturous about this indisputably vibrant collective in the accompanying DVD. And the Havana-based To'Mezclao are indeed very good: a seven-strong crew of music enthusiasts whose versatility (and danceability) knows no bounds. Cubans, of course, have music in their DNA, and to stand out in a country which currently boasts the likes of Guantanamo rappers Madera Limpia and Havana's jazz-leaning Interactivo collective is really saying something. Fronted by the doe-eyed and taut-of-torso singer Yoandri "El Conejo" Castro, with project founder DJ Lyng Chang on decks and sisters Yusi and Yonaiky GonzŠlez on flute and keyboards respectively, To'Mezclao spark mass hysteria wherever they perform - as the DVD, which features El Conejo and guest singer Crema pelvic-thrusting in unison - testifies. They've also collaborated with symphony orchestras and the likes of Brazilian piano legend Jo„o Donato.
