For the first time ever: JazzFM91 is heading on a jazz safari to the musically rich Santiago de Cuba
Dates: Jan. 22-29, 2020 – This safari is guided by Jane Bunnett and Larry Cramer, two artists who have spent decades steeped in Cuba and its vibrant music and culture. “Santiago de Cuba is the most musically rich city in Cuba. Every corner you turn, there will be a group rehearsing or playing,” says Bunnett. “It’s spectacular. We love Cuba because there’s just this abundance of culture. It’s in your face all day long.” Give us a call at 1-800-811-2400 to hold your spot today. Get more details.
Jane Bunnett and Maqueque released On Firm Ground/Tierra Firme on September 6, 2019 via Linus Entertainment/True North Records. The Canadian bandleader helms the six-piece troupe on a dozen tracks that incorporate ideas from the Jazz world and the vast well of Cuban music.
Jane Bunnett would like to thank these organizations for their generous help with international tour support and assistance with taking this music worldwide.
