KCSM just hosted their second tour of Cuba. The group is back and they are raving ! The blog will provide a another look at the tour view of Cuba, the traveler’s impressions, the music to be found there, and how to ease your way if you chose to visit.
While Cuban economy is in recession and short of a lot of things, they are not short of music. Some of their jazz musicians are right up with us, and then they have their latin specialties. The tour heard a street Santeria drum & dance group who were really hot. A clip here is not the street group in question, but is a sample of the type. If you’re visiting Havana and want to catch the original group, get to (the alley:-) Callejon de Hamel, Sunday afternoons only. By mid-show you will be easily caught up in their fever pitch.
