Sin Clave No Hay Na
Cuban Music Videos on US Television
It's not PBS, but thanks to the internet, it doesn't have to be...
Toni Basanta, an immigrant to Vermont from Cuba, where he had been involved in various aspects of the music and broadcasting sectors, hosts a television program there, the Havana Fairfax Connection, which frequently features fine Cuban music videos as well as some US music videos (he also has a radio program, The Cuban Bridge, which is currently on a COVID-related hiatus).
During December, every day of the month at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time, the Havana Fairfax Connection will be playing music videos. The dates which have Cuban music videos are listed below. Worth watching if you are able. If you can't do it at broadcast time, these are also archived on the station's website.
