    Colombian singer Yuri Buenaventura's 2003 album VAGABUNDO includes a tribute to poet Pablo Neruda and "Afrotango."
    Yuri Buenaventura is far more than just another salsero. It's part of his music -- just listen to the warm "Neruda," a salute to the great Chilean poet -- but he's more a pan-Latin roots stylist who uses a lot of thought and intellect along with the passion in his music. There's a strong streak of social consciousness running through his work, not only in the obvious, like "Terror," but also in "Donde Estars?" a wonderful piece of Cuban son. In some ways he's reminiscent of Rubn Blades -- they seem to have similar spirits and equal ambition for Latin music. To achieve that, he has some fabulously talented musicians working with him. But more than anything, it's the breadth of his vision that's astonishing. He can move easily from the Afro-Cuban "Afrotango" to the title cut with its lazy Parisian feel (it comes in both French and Spanish), and sound completely convincing on "Coqui" and "Paloma Taina," a pair of gorgeous odes to Puerto Rico. With his expressive, malleable voice and his easy command of so much Latin music, Buenaventura is a remarkable singer and writer. The only question is -- why isn't he a huge star? ~ Chris Nickson
