We started out with a fun idea which grew into a monster and ended up with CORO NA MÁ (which roughly translates as ‘Chorus and nothing more’). Conceived by Bombo Productions’ choir, Coro de Clave, we hope this project connects a community people who share a love of Afro Cuban folkloric music who, because of the coronavirus lockdown, are prevented from meeting in person.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this project. We had contributors from England, Scotland, Wales, Bristol, Newcastle, France, Australia and Cuba!
