Fania Records Presents: Jose Marquez

++ What was the idea behind the mix? ++
The idea was to put together a 1 hour musical story of the music that i love within an Afro-Cuban context.

++ How (if in any way) is the mix influenced by Cuba? ++
Every song on here is influenced by Cuba. From tracks featuring Cuban artist like Celia Cruz, Carlos Patato Valdez & Elsa Valle to orisha infused Afro-house tracks embedded with sacred bata drums and patterns. The styles of songs chosen may vary a little but their origins are all the same.

++ What excites you most about the journey to Santiago? ++
Afro-Cuban music has a strong influence on what I do. It's the music I loved listening to when growing up. I have always felt very connected and drawn to the culture, the drumming, the rhythms. It is a special place that I have always wanted to visit and feel honored to do so very soon!
