I have two things to say about this project. 1, Cuban needed something out there, no matter what and regardless of the format and presentation. As someone who earned my musical ears listening to Skah Shah, my expectation is always very high when the name Shah Shah is mentioned. So I am always careful to differentiate between a genuine Skah Shah product and one by a Skah Shah Product. And this is simply what this is: a product (the CD) by a Skah Shah Product (Cubano). Many have said that Cubano IS Skah Shah, I forcefully disagree with that characterization. One may recognize Skah Shah by the voice of Cubano but Skah Shah is (was) more than the voice of Cubano. Cubano released one of the best Konpa Albums of all times, "L'Essence". L'Essence was a great product but it was not a Skah Shah product. It was a product by a Skah Shah Product.
