MEZCLA US TOUR BEGINS THIS WEEK
Also: New Radio Show Features Cuban Music
Mezcla, one of Cuba's most important fusion bands, begins a tour of the United States this week beginning with the World Music Festival in Millennium Park in Chicago on Friday, September 12. As this is being written, the finishing touches are being put on a new recording, Pure Mezcla, which will be released November 1, 2014. (Those of you in radio and the press can write yours truly, Bill Tilford, for more details about the recording.) This is is raw footage from Mezcla's 2013 concert at Yoshi's in Oakland.:
This tour will be using the same personnel as this concert. This edition of the group relies more heavily on Pablo's guitar than most previous versions of the group, and he delivers. For the complete tour itinerary and more, visit Mezcla's website. And stay tuned for Pure Mezcla, coming in November.
La Timba, along with other new Cuban music, is frequently an orphan in many radio stations that play other Caribbean music, so I'm pleased to tell you Frank Camacho and I now are playing a fair share of it (along with other music) on a brand new radio show, Domingos Felices, every Sunday afternoon from 2-4pm Chicago time. In metro Chicago, you can hear it on WCEV 1450am. The rest of the planet can listen to it via Internet here. Hablamos español, pero la música es pa' todo el mundo. Tenemos entrevistas y otras cosas buenas también. Tenemos una nueva página en Facebook: Domingos Felices Radio1450
