Cuban Rhapsody / by Maria Hinojosa | August 26, 2011

Cuban Rhapsody
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Cuba is a place where people and cultures from around the world mix and collide. In the 19th and 20th centuries, those diverse influences were reflected in its music, blending classical European music with African rhythms and even early jazz. Musical styles like the danzon, the son, and contradanza were popular in Cuba and around the world during those periods. Now, master musicians Jane Bunnett and Hilario Duran have taken those Cuban classics and blended the music in a unique style on their new album, Cuban Rhapsody. Maria Hinojosa sat down with Jane and Hilario to talk about the inspiration behind their latest work.
