On 31st July 2018- Australia’s leading reggae and dancehall producer Mista Savona (aka Jake Savona) has gathered together some of Cuba’s and Jamaica’s most influential musicians to create a fresh, unifying take on the music of both cultures.
Drawing from the styles of roots reggae, dub and dancehall on the one hand and son, salsa, rumba and Afro-Cuban on the other, Havana Meets Kingston sees a top-flight group of musicians come together in an effortless meeting of genres.
Energetic and passionate vocals in Spanish, English and Jamaican patois twist and turn over distinctly Cuban rhythms and melodies, while the typically deep bass lines of Jamaica pulse beneath. No interval. Where: LONDON Royal Albert Hall Kensington Gore
