20 YEARS OF WOMEX - Ska Cubano at WOMEX 2004
We're taking a listen to one of our personal favourites in today's 20 Years Time Machine. 2004, our 10th anniversary, saw Ska Cubano play with members from no fewer than five countries: UK, Cuba, Japan, Montserrat and Jamaica.
Their style is pretty self-evident from their name, but provides only the slightest hint of the infectious and dancy joy embedded in their music.
Click on the link and hear them playing the title track from their second album Ay Caramba! at the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.
