Pressestimmen

"This is without a doubt the most comprehensive English language study of an individual Cuban religious drummer." --Steve Cornelius "Drumming for the Gods constitutes an impressive accomplishment and includes a great deal of previously unavailable information. It represents a significant contribution to existing literature on Cuban music and cultural history." --Robin Moore, Temple University "[This book] documents the musical traditions of the Afro-Christian Santaria cults through the life history of one of Cuba's most esteemed practitioners of sacred drumming." --Institute for Studies in American Music Newsletter
