2016-10-21 Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean Music

Celia Cruz by Erich Lugo PadillaThe musics of Cuba and Africa are so enmeshed that it can be tough to tell where one ends and the other begins. But who cares? It’s all great music, and we hear Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean sounds from both sides of the Atlantic this week. Not coincidentally, today is the birthday of Celia Cruz.

2011-07-01 Afro-Cuban Music

The roots of a musical style can be tough to pin down. That’s certainly the case with Afro-Cuban music. Certainly the roots lie in Africa, but styles have bounced back and forth across the ocean for many generations, and now the music is played wordwide. Today’s show samples Afro-Cuban and broader Afro-Latin (Brazil, Haiti) music of present and past. Plus new releases and a very special cover song (which we’ll call a Persian version) in the second hour. Congratulations to the ticket winners for next week’s AfroCubism show!Rough Guide to Afro-Cuba CD
