Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, and the country has a very active and vibrant music life. That is hardly surprising as the Cubans are very warm-blooded and fond of life. It manifests itself in many ways, but a passionate relationship to music is certainly a result of the aforementioned. Another distinctive feature of the music life in Cuba and then especially in the stage scene is a sky-high instrumental integrity. Four of the really big Cuban prog bands besides Anima Mundi are Musica D`repuesto, Naranja Mecanica, Perfume De Mujer and Sintesis.
