Description of Event
A presentation with Cuban musician Pablo Menéndez. Menéndez brings video footage emphasizing areas of Cuban music that surprise people (Jazz, Cuban rock, Cuban hip-hop, Cuban "new song," and political singer songwriters), as well as showing the most popular current dance styles (of what would be called "salsa" in the US) and bands that are not well known in the US, despite being very popular with 11 million people who live only 90 miles away from Florida.
