There is a documentary with Ry Cooder traveling to Cuba and performing with some old school musicians. Here is the album they recorded.

Afro Cuban music is awesome. The history of it is pretty interesting too.

I know what you mean. My daughter loves Cuban food and we listen their music while we eat in the Cuban restaurant near home. I don't know why it makes it taste better. MUCHO SABOR.

Was going to mention this myself.

Also the Alegre All Stars and the Alegre label were amazing



Alegre Records was a New York record label that was founded in 1956 [1] by Al Santiago who owned a 1950s record store in The Bronx named Casalegre and co-founded by clothing businessman Ben Perlman.[2] It specialized in Latin music and was significant for featuring artists such as Johnny Pacheco and Tito Puente and was the first to record a series of great Latin artists, from Johnny Pacheco, Eddie Palmieri, through Willie Colón. It has been called the "Blue Note" of Latin music


In 1961, Al Santiago created the Alegre All Stars (also spelled Alegre All-Stars), remembering the well-known Cuban Jam Sessions ("Descargas Cubanas") in the 1950s on the Panart Records label. Johnny Pacheco got his friend, the trombonist Barry Rogers, to play with the Alegre All-Stars which featured a unique instrumentation of flute, tenor sax, and trombone.
