So I spent last week running around Havana Cuba, smoking cigars, drinking rum, and listening to music. It was an eye opening experience, both good and bad.  So tonight's playlist will be made up of music that was stuck in my head throughout my travels...becoming a natural soundtrack.  I should note here, that it's not going to be entirely Cuban music, as all sorts of crazy things get lodged in your brain when you travel. 

Doing a Latin Music two-step tonight for Bridging the Gap... playing two songs from a country before jumping to the next.

So talking to Ray Cruz (Host of Latin Beat, Friday's from 8-10pm), I was inspired by is story of his father using a Pilón at home to mash up cooking spices.  I was inspired of the idea of taking spices, or in the case of this show, music and mashing it up to make something tasty.  So the music will be a mixture of Latin Boogaloo, Brazilian Samba, and some favorite flips and remixes.  

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, were keeping it nice and mellow in the first hour, then breaking into some stiff jazz in the second hour.

One of Cuba’s top percussionists is making a stop this week in Hawai‘i.

Pedrito Martinez is a percussionist and bandleader who blends complex percussion arrangements, his distinctive tenor, and the Afro-Cuban music of Santería.
