Igbó Alákọrin (The Singer’s Grove) Vol. I and II is one more in David Virelles' series of explorations into the legacy and possibilities of Cuban music. But unlike its predecessors, this album is more focused on the past than the future - no electronics, no abstractions, no classical crossover, just the decades-old sound of Santiago de Cuba. "...Igbó Alákọrin might be Virelles' most radical album yet because here the music is moving in both directions - forward and backward - at the same time." - DownBeat Magazine
