Some people might call Ned Sublette a Renaissance man, by virtue of his wide and eclectic range in music and writing. Others might call him a cowboy, while others would perhaps opt for "rumbero". He's really all of these things, and more.
He's researched for and written three seminal books: Cuba and Its Music: From the First Drums to the Mambo, The World That Made New Orleans: From Spanish Silver to Congo Square, and The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans.
He studied Spanish classical guitar and composition. His label Qbadisc distributes Cuban music in the United States.
He is a Guggenheim Fellow.
He's a Spanish-speaking Texan who wound up in New York City singing cowboy music in clave to congas, maracas and horns.
Viva el vaquero!
