Anacaona [electronic resource]: The Amazing Story of Cuba's Forgotten Girl Band

Formed in 1930s Havana, the all-girl orchestra Anacaona achieved world-wide popularity. Cuchito Castro, and eventually her 11 sisters, took on the male-dominated world of "son" music. Son combines the structure and elements of Spanish cancion, Spanish guitar, African rhythms, and percussion instruments of Bantu origin. At the time it was believed women were not capable of playing son. With concerts in 1938 in New York and Paris, along with films in Mexico, Anacaona rose to international fame, but then faded into obscurity after the Cuban Revolution.
