Miguel "Anga" Diaz Discography

Postby bongosnotbombs » Wed Dec 28, 2011 7:29 am

Trying to compile a "complete" list of Anga's recordings. This is what I have so far. Please let me know of any others I can add. Confirmed "Anga" recordings only. I know Jorge posted a discography a while back but I can't seem to find it. Anyways, this is what I have from various sources...I'm sure I'm missing a few Irakere albums and maybe a few more obscure recordings...

In the late 80s, or early 90s he put out a cassette of pure percussion Anga Nacimientos, in which he played all of the parts. I don't think there were very many of them manufactured. It's quite an impressive work, although his exhibitions of technique are at times distracting.

Thanks David, do you have a copy of Anga Nacimientos yourself? I never heard of that one before.

That seems to be one very obscure recording, I can't seem to find any mention of it. Which label released it?

There is no record label or serial number listed. It may have been recorded at Banff, Canada, during a workshop featuring Anga, Changuito, Irakere, and Los Munequitos, in the early 90s. My friend bought the cassette directly from Anga (who signed), at the workshop. The tape and insert are printed, so it's not exactly "home-made." However, I suspect that there were less than 1,000 manufactured, perhaps as few as a couple of hundred. Here's one of the cuts:
