From the Isle of Music, week of December 19-24

From the Isle of Music, week of December 19-24
This week, our special guest will be Degnis Bofill, an emerging young percussion star in Cuba who received two awards in this year's JoJazz competition. We'll have a brief interview and some music that features him on percussion. Also, in honor of their GRAMMY® nominations, we will feature music from Los Van Van's La Fantasia and Chucho Valdes' Tribute to Irakere. And, as always, other good things.
Three options for listening on shortwave:
WBCQ, 7490 KHz, Tuesdays 0100-0200 UTC (8pm-9pm EDT Mondays in the Americas)
Channel 292, 6070 KHz, Fridays 1100-1200 UTC (1200-1300 CET) and Saturdays 1600-1700 UTC (1700-1800 CET)*
*The Saturday broadcast may receive interference from the Voice of Turkey in some areas but is definitely listenable in the UK and probably in NE Europe. 
See our Facebook page for more information.
