Mixing indie rock with traditional Cuban music ain't easy, but it makes for one hell of a ride. The Cuban Cowboys bring a post-punk sensibility to the heart of the Buena Vista Social club. Armed with mambo riffs,swooning surf guitar, and a killer live show, the band is steadily building a following across the US. They're touring in support of their debut album “Cuban Candles”, the musical chronicle of one family's exile experience. "Cuban Candles," entered CMJ’s Latin Alt.Chart at #84, and climbed to #2 after only four weeks. It went as high as #15 on the World chart. NPR in California named "Cuban Candles" among 2007's top-10 releases, and Newsday said the album was “destined to become a classic intersection between roots rock and Cuban Son.” With a live EP set for release in early 2008, the band hopes to continue winning new fans and spreading el word.
