Cuba Insight – Join the list

Cuba is not just another country with music.

It’s nothing less than the Mother Ship of Afro-Latin music.

With its habanera, danzon, changüí, son, son montuno, rumba, mambo, cha-cha-cha, timba, and wide variety of Afro-Cuban spiritual musical forms, Cuba has been as important to the music of the world as the United States has been with its blues, jazz, rock and rock, and gospel music.

But getting information about the Cuban jazz scene is not easy…

It’s scarcely covered by major jazz magazines. Even getting a list of jazz venues in Havana isn’t easy.

Ken’s Cuba List is filling the gap with videos and articles that will help you put Cuba’s music in perspective and educate yourself about its riches past and present.

We’re also sharing practical information including travel tips and a weekly listing of what’s going on in the clubs in Havana (the only source of this particular info on the Internet.)

The Eddie Durham Festival Returns On October 15, 2022

In commemoration of a truly influential musician, The 2022 Eddie Durham Festival resumes on Saturday, October 15th (all day), outdoors in the Eddie Durham Park & Pavilion, within his hometown of San Marcos, Texas.

The stellar lineup includes:

Pamela Hart
(Her performance of “How Glad I Am” is guaranteed to win you over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aX5ITLrFgkY)

Jerry Espinoza
(Here is Jerry’s group in a full concert Live at Monk’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDcnCC7_GYA)

JazzBonez
(Listen to the ensemble play Benny Golson’s classic tune Stablemates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVKK9EpWui4), and Eddie Durham’s daughter Topsy Durham will be emceeing!

The street will be blocked off, to accommodate many vendors, and for security reasons.

Support The Eddie Durham Festival (It’s fast, easy, and tax deductible, too!)

The Calaboose African American History Museum (https://www.calaboosemuseum.org/about), which houses the only permanent Eddie Durham exhibit, requires help from music lovers and those who understand the importance of keeping Black American History alive, such as yourself.

Located just a few steps from Eddie Durham Park & Pavilion where the festival will take place, the museum will act as a cooling center from the outdoor heat as well as place for public educational segments to be held.

During the festival you can bring your Eddie Durham books to the Calaboose African American History Museum to get Topsy Durham’s autograph, as well.

Your kind donation is being requested in support of these events.

Please donate whatever amount moves your heart, and consider an annual donation, as the Museum is a 501c3 non-profit org. No amount is too small or too large.
