Latin Roots: New Cuban Music

Reporter Catalina Maria Johnson recently traveled to the far end of Cuba in search of a new sound.
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. Check out more in our Spotify playlist.
