The Negro Yanga CD was released in 2007 as a tribute to an old Mexican slave town.

African Djembe and hand drumer Owen Towles participated strongly in this recording both as a player and engineer.

EL NEGRO YANGA, is the founder of the first black town in the Americas to become free from slavery. The town is named YANGA, VERACRUZ, near Cordoba and the Port of Veracruz in Mexico.

Yanga's name is also well known and used in Nigerian pidgeon English to describe people who are "too proud of themselves". "You dey make yanga!" people will say.
