Customer Reviews

A great find.

After hearing a story about these guys on the radio I took a chance and shelled out my big (almost) ten bucks for this album and it's turned out to be an unexpected treat. It's hard to find one musical comparison for what this band is about, because I've never heard quite this combo before (cuban, alt-rock... and surf?!?), but here are a few attempts: like Sublime, for the cultural hybrid and get-down island party vibes combined with smart lyrics; like Nirvana for the mixture of musicality and raw rock-out energy. An obvious comparison would be Los Lobos, although the Cowboys are coming out of Cuban rather than Mexican traditional music and are less folksy and more edgy. Listen to Cuban Candles first for the music, then listen some more for the stories.

Unique

Usually characterized as "world" music. The Cowboys capture the best of Surf/Latino/Rock and Roll. Great music, great lyrics.

Family Stories

Cuban Candles is a biographcial telling of some not always so joyous family stories, but makes the best of what might not always about the happy part of life and one's family. This album is a what I like to call Cuban Surf Rock, mixed with story telling.
