As Obama's historic trip to Cuba came to a close, we made our own (not very) historic trip into the wonderful music of this unique island, taking a much more regional approach than usual.
We lined up lots of different artists and styles, from bolero to afro-cuban jazz to much more contemporary takes on this distinctive area of music. We also look at the Cuban influence in jazz and the Spanish Harlem, and its more recent travels across the world.
Once again, we had an extra hour this week (we probably should start planning for two hours eh?) so we continued with many a Cuban rhythm.
