Radio Cuba Canta presents a tribute to the great Cuban musical institution, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro!

Host and Cuban music historian Emiliano Echeverria is joined by Luis Medina of KPFA’s Con Sabor to present a special interview with members of Septeto Nacional, discussing the group’s history since its formation in 1927, and its original founder, Ignacio Piñero.

Septeto Nacional was finally allowed to enter the United States and bring their classic Cuban son to enthusiastic audiences in New York, Miami and California. Their performances at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco quickly sold out. Other performances have been added, but are going fast!

The program also features a jam session recorded in the KPFA Studios with members of el Septeto joined by Bay Area Cuban son-fusion group Pellejo Seco, with special guest Tito Gonzalez.

‘Radio Cuba Canta’ broadcasts Saturday 9pm Pacific in the San Francisco Bay and Northern California (12 midnight Eastern). For more information about the upcoming program and others, visit: RadioCubaCanta.blogspot.com
