Marc Ribot y Los Cubanos Postizos

One of the ultimate New York City party bands, Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos (aka “The Prosthetic Cubans”) became a must-see attraction in the late 1990s, with its feverishly cooking shows built around arrangements of Cuban bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez – innovator of the son montuno, and two critically acclaimed albums released on Atlantic Records. Reformed by popular demand with the addition of Cuban’s own Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez on drums and original members Anthony Coleman (keys), Brad Jones (bass) and EJ Rodriquez (perc), 2011 had the band once again in front of ecstatic audiences from such stages as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Fuji Rock Festival and Ellnora Guitar Festival at the Krannert Center of Performing Arts. 

"At every turn, Ribot dazzles with both his urbanity and his radical streak, creating a wonder of otherworldly Cuban soul." - Guitar Magazine

“Ribot’s celebration of Rodriguez’s legacy is distinguished by informed guts and understated grace. In its soulful warmth and tart guitar invention, this record is everything – bright, daring, alive...”
-Rolling Stone 

“At every turn, Ribot dazzles with both his urbanity and his radical streak, creating a wonder of otherworldly Cuban soul.”
-Guitar Magazine 

“What distinguishes this disk from other Cubanismo collections is Ribot’s mix of the soft and sultry with the hard-edged and rocking. The result is triumphant fiesta that bears repeated spins.”
-San Francisco Examiner
