From World Cafe Latin Roots: listen to new Cuban Music

One of the World Cafe’s Latin Music reporter – Catalina Maria Johnson of Chicago’s Beat Latino – recently returned from Cuba very excited about some new music. She traveled all the way across the island, from Havana to Santiago de Cuba, for the Manana festival, which is dedicated to combining traditional music with electronics. Johnson brought back some great examples of that blend in songs by DJ Jigüe and La Dame Blanche. Listen to her interview on World Cafe and the Spotify playlist she put together below.
