"Cancionero Rumbero" 2002 Rumba lyrics in a PDF file

This is the "Cancionero Rumbero", put together by 'Barry Cox', the N.Y.C. based singer and web master of the Cuban Rumba blog:
These are the lyrics meticulously translated into Spanish from 175 of the most historically important songs within the Afro-Cuban 'Guaguancó', 'Rumba Columbia', Yambú and Abakúa music of Cuba.

Before this, there did not exist "in this detailed form" anything like it.

The download is the complete "Cancionero Rumbero", 42 pages in a .PDF file.
