Havana Cultura is a global initiative developed by Havana Club International (producer of Havana Club, the authentic Cuban rum) to give a unique platform to today’s Cuban artists from all disciplines. 2009 marked the beginning of Gilles Peterson’s partnership with the Havana Cultura project as he travelled to Havana to carry out initial explorations of the Cuban underground and record an album: ‘Havana Cultura: New Cuba Sound’. The double CD album was a celebration of Cuba’s musical forces spanning Latin, Afro jazz and fusion to hip-hop, funk, reggaeton and soul. In support of this project, Peterson began a European tour in June/July 2010, accompanied by Fonseca, his band and vocalists Danay Suarez, Ogguere and Obsesión.

I am just starting listening to this show. Looks promising.


REALLY dig your selections on here. Influential for me to get my crates even deeper, not just with variety, but quality gems.
