June marks the 25th anniversary of Spirits Of Havana, Jane Bunnett's landmark 1991 album. It was the first major collaboration of North American and Cuban musicians, preceding Buena Vista Social Club by several years.
Jane Bunnett is known for her creative integrity, improvisational daring and courageous artistry. Her exploration of Afro–Cuban melodies expresses the universality of music and her ability to embrace and showcase the rhythms and culture of Cuba has been groundbreaking.
Jane Bunnett's accolades are numerous, including: five JUNO Awards and multiple Downbeat Award wins, The Order of Canada, The Queens Diamond Jubilee medal and Ontario's Premiers Award of Excellence, in addition to two GRAMMY Award nominations and receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Smithsonian Institute.
The 25th anniversary deluxe 2CD edition re–issue collection includes the second full–length album Chamalongo and features 3 unreleased tracks in addition to a 36–page booklet including historical photos and extensive notes by the late Robert Palmer and writer Ned Sublette.
