Amazing Cuban Music Podcasts

Introduction

I've spent the last five years working on a book about the connections between Cuban music and English language pop. In the process, I've stumbled on two really extraordinary music history podcasts: Let It Roll and The Clave Chronicles. Over the next week I'll be reviewing each of these in detail, with three galleries of Tom Ehrlich's San José Jazz photos interspersed. If you have suggestions for others, please leave them in the comments section. Stay tuned! [Kevin Moore]
