The Caribbean island of Cuba has been influential in the development of multiple musical styles in the 19th and 20th centuries. Cuban music of high quality includes "classical" music, some with predominantly European influences, and much of it inspired by both Afro-Cuban and Spanish music.

Cuban pianist Daniel Amat, accompanied by some of Los Angeles sought after studio musicians, pays a tribute to some of Cuba’s most prolific composers, from Contradanza to Mambo, featuring music from Ignacio Cervantes (1847-1905), Ernesto Lecuona (1895-1963) and Israel Lopez “Cachao” (1918-2008).
