Cuban Music Now

by Judy Cantor-Navas  |  July 25, 2013

Be it in the roots of salsa, the rhythms of Latin jazz or the enduring romance of bolero, the music of Cuba reverberates around the world. While a little record called Buena Vista Social Club brought listeners back to the classic island sound, the incredible and diverse music streaming out of today's Cuba remains a mystery to many, even if it is followed obsessively by dedicated Cubaphiles. If you can't do like Jay-Z and Beyonce and experience Cuban music firsthand, you can still catch up on current Cuban sounds right here. From Danay Suarez's Carribean R&B vocals to Carlos Varela's conscious folk anthems; Chucho Valdes' masterful Afro-Cuban jazz; Descemer Bueno's trova-pop; X Alfonso's mix of Cuban beats, hip-hop and rock; and dance music by Manolito Simonet, Pedrito Calvo, Isaac Delgado and more, this is Cuba now.
