RUMBA INTERNATIONALE, Las Rubias' first album, was released on February 14th, 2004. It was the first release on the Barbès label. The eight track CD features songs written by Margarita Lecuona (of Tabu and Babalu fame), W.A. Mozart and The Sons of the Pioneers, as well as selections previously interpreted by artists as varied as Nat King Cole, Los Panchos, Edith Piaf, and Abba.
The result is a smooth, beautiful CD which stays clear of kitsch or hipster irony, while retaining both a sense of humor and a sense of tradition. Rumba Internationale has been called “surpassingly pretty” by critic Robert Christgau.
