"The Cuban reality reveals itself in many forms, perhaps none as compelling as its music. Through the rhythm, by way of the melody, within the lyric, and in the arrangement and performance, the music speaks to the Cuban condition, past and present. Few have conveyed knowledge of this relationship with the originality and thoroughness that Robin Moore demonstrates in this book. Music and Revolution offers insight and understanding of the Cuban Revolution unobtainable by any other means. It will assume a place of prominence among those books considered obligatory reading."—Louis A. Pérez Jr., author of To Die in Cuba: Suicide and Society
