World Circuit Records has made its reputation by producing some of the finest albums of the past three decades. The label is best known for the Grammy-winning Buena Vista Social Club album (and associated solo artists Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo and Rubén González), which is the biggest selling world music album of all time and has contributed to the phenomenal rise in popularity of Cuban, as well as Latin American, music.

World Circuit is also home to a number of revered African artists including the late Tony Allen (whose Afrobeat-jazz collaboration with Hugh Masekela ‘Rejoice’ was released to great critical acclaim in March), iconic blues pioneer Ali Farka Touré (whose classic Grammy-winning ‘Talking Timbuktu’ album, recorded with Ry Cooder, brought the label early international acclaim), Malian divas and social activists Oumou Sangaré and Fatoumata Diawara, master kora player Toumani Diabaté, the illustrious Orchestra Baobab and musical iconoclast Cheikh Lô.

With further brand new releases planned for 2021 and beyond, World Circuit continues to bring diverse, genre-defying music to a wider audience.

Two years after the release of Grammy Award winning, multi-million selling Buena Vista Social Club, many of the same musicians went back into the studio to record this classic debut album from Ibrahim Ferrer. The album, a collection of eleven songs sung by the golden voice of Cuban music, elevated Ferrer to superstar status. Using the Buena Vista Social Club rhythm section and featuring the piano of Rubén González, it’s an album of great subtlety and beauty, featuring an extraordinarily stylistic range from the nostalgic 1950s American big band style, to stunning ballads with an unusual and opulent guitar accompaniment, as well as rich country-style songs.

Described by Ry Cooder as "the Latin Nat King Cole", Ibrahim had retired from music when he was called upon to take part in the Buena Vista sessions. Capturing the fairy tale quality of his musical rebirth, his debut solo album - produced by Ry himself - is infused with his boundless energy and immense charisma.
