On February 22 (February 23 in Europe/Africa), our special guest will be Juan Chacón, leader of the Cuban Jazz saxophone quartet Magic Sax with an interview in Spanish recorded in Havana plus some of their music. We also begin sharing some of the Cuban Classical music album Piñera Concertante and will be playing 10-15 minutes from it each of the next few weeks along with our wonderful collection of other Cuban music.
Every Monday night from 8pm-9pm EST in North, Central and South America (Tuesday morning from 0100-0200 UTC in Europe and Africa) on the short waves on WBCQ The Planet, 7.490 MHz:
From the Isle of Music, a new radio program dedicated to the music of Cuba – Jazz, Fusion, Timba, Nueva Trova, Son, Classical, Folklorica, interviews with musicians, even a little history of the music now and then. Partly in English, en parte en español. “Like” our page to keep informed about what we will bring you.
