A Cuban star who found his way to Miami via Colombia in 1961, Carlos Oliva jammed with Julio Gutiérrez and Willy Chirino. Oliva's stealthy fusion of rock, jazz, samba, son, guaracha, and other Cuban rhythms makes each song sound like an original. His newest CD, Yayabo, includes conga songs such as "Yayabo" and "Vehículo/Tu Carrito." Rayme Samuels
