Beat Latino keeps the paseo musical in Cuba one more work, but viewed from outside the island. This week’s selection is music created by Cuban artists in the U.S., Canada, France…powerful rhythmic concoctions fed by Cuban roots transplanted elsewhere. It includes hip hop, jazz, son cubano, descarga with touches of flamenco and other hybrids that share the different worlds these Cuban artists are experiencing. Enjoy!
