Happy Hour no°316 – 22 March 2016 – Cuba Libre!

Happy Hour puts Cuban music at the forefront tonight, with tracks from days of old, and new sounds – celebrating the end of a Cold War lock-down, which began with Barack Obama’s visit this week (20-22 March, 2016) – the first US president to do so in 88 years.
If you want a play list, get in touch, but suffice to say, there’s everything from the classic Revolucion anthem “Hasta Siempre” by Carlos Puebla, to Lou Bega’s rendition of “Just a Gigolo”, Raul Paz & his “Havanization” to pearls found on Gilles Peterson’s magnificent double album “Havana Cultura” like rap-funk groups Obsesion and Ogguere. A real pleasure to put together this Happy Hour Cubana mix!

Ce soir Ollia met à l’honneur la musique de Cuba, pour fêter la visite de Barack Obama, 1er président américain depuis 88ans de s’y rendre pour discuter avec son homologue, dans ce cas, Raul Castro.
