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.
