Tonite: 26 June 2010 – Cuba Canta con Emiliano Echeverria – KPFA FM

27 Jun

Radio Cuba Canta welcomes the summer with a potpurri of some of that great Cuban music “you can’t get enuf of!” We’ll begin with some music for the Orishas then to some Rumba and early Son. We’ll hear some Danzones from the near and distant past plus some 1950s Charanga sounds, and feature a tribute to the life and music of Francisco Aguabella.

We will also be joined by Cuban visa attorney Bill Martinez to discuss the current efforts to bring Cuban musicians to perform in the United States, include a mix of some 60s and 70s Cuban sounds, the Community Music Calendar from Ron Flores, and conclude with some great Timba and Cuban Hip-hop……..

Tonite: 28 November: Broadcast Tribute to Septeto Nacional

29 Nov


Tonight, Radio Cuba Canta presents a tribute commemorating the long-awaited arrival of 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 will also feature a jam session in the KPFA Studios recorded by our own C-Tone 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
