Back from Cuba

Back from my second multi-week research trip to Mantazas, Cuba. This time I was producing a radio program/podcast about the Matanzas record label/artist collective Sendero Music/El Almacén, as well as studying batá with Idalberto “Puchito” Pérez, musical director of AfroCuba de Matanzas.
