Ned Sublette: Cowboy Rhumba

Singer and bandleader Ned Sublette grew up in a New Mexico town listening to rock, country and Cuban pop. Years later, he realized that the beat he wanted in his twangy songs was the clave, not the shuffle. On Cowboy Rhumba, Sublette is backed by some of the hottest dance bands in Latin music today, a remarkable mix that was years in the making.
