The Melting Pot Radio Hour -Episode #7: Digs From Havana, With Love


Now that I’ve finally dug myself out of the doldrums of this past semester, you’ll see a lot more from me online (and, perhaps, back on the radio too). This episode of the “Melting Pot Radio Hour” fulfills a promise made earlier in the year to share some of the vinyl I dug up this past time around in Havana (unbelievably, all the way back in January, which seems like three years ago to me at the present moment). I’ve now gone down to Tienda Seriosha on three occasions and each time I am surprised by how much music I continue to discover. Every time I think I know a little bit about Post-Revolutionary Cuban music, I discover I barely know anything at all. Here are just a few of my discoveries from this past trip, many of which will find their way onto the site or into a “Sorpresa Musical” mix in the near future.
