Looking for La Bomba: The Cuban Adventures of a Musical Oaf
Dissatisfied with a comfortable but uninspiring life in London, Richard Neill decided he'd like to play double bass on stage with a top Cuban Sonband.
This is the story of a year spent on that unique island - a country still dominated by the figure of Castro. And the place where our hero casts aside his English inhibitions and his own musical inadequacy in search of La Bomba(his rhythm . . .)
Funny, self-deprecating and life-affirming, Looking for La Bombais a magical mix of McCarthy's Barand the Buena Vista Social Club - a book for anyone who's ever dreamed an impossible dream.
