Cuban bata player and singer Mario L. Pino, better known as Mayito, toured for many years with the Latin Jazz group Afro Cuba with whom he recorded a couple of albums. Mayito was invited to join his Cuban friend Changuito and a group of musicians from the UK to travel to Johannesburg where in 1995 they worked with lots of local musicians like Amampondo and Zim Ngqwana on a project called Outernational Meltdown. Some years later while playing at Ronnie Scotts Mayito left a tape at Brownhill Farm Studios which was found much later and before archived it was transferred to a DAT.
25 years later the recordings are finally finding its way into the light and ears of listeners. The album also features 4 remixes from 1995 – the time Mayito recorded in Johannesburg.
