Research Inquiry on Music of Amadeo Roldán y Gardes (1900-1939) Afro-Cuban Composer, Violinist and Conductor

 Amadeo Roldán y Gardes  (1900-1939)

Philip Foster of Open Dance Ensemble writes about the music of the Afro-Cuban composer, violinist and conductor  Amadeo Roldán y Gardes  (1900-1939), who is featured at

I am trying to find someone very knowledgeable about Roldan's music; in particular I am trying to find out if the Ritmicas were written for dance or if he wrote any music for dance other than La rebambaramba. He set some poems called Dances to music but that is something else.

Can you help or know who could?  Thanks, Philip
