A week at the Havana Film Festival, Cuba:
"At a time when world events are pushing some people to put up more borders, CULTSHA.COM shows us---through travel, music and other arts---the many ways we can connect and find our commonality."
--Erin Martin, International Media Consultant and Author
Cultsha is going to Cuba... Musicabana is an international music festival featuring 30 concerts over 4 days in 3 Havana locations. Christine and Cameron will be there to cover this first time collaboration between American producers and the Cuban government. Plus, we get to see our favorite Cuban-New Yorker, Pedrito Martinez and his band, play on their home turf. Stay tuned for our daily posts from behind the scenes, artist interviews and concert footage. http://musicabana.com

Cuba [Not So] Libre
On my third and most recent trip to Cuba this past April, I noticed stark changes since I had been in Havana exactly twenty years prior.
Once Chronixx and his band, Zincfence Redemption, hit the stage it was clear that the audience were his disciples, singing along, waving flags and basking in the new ambassador of reggae.
