Latin Roots: Nueva Trova from Cuba Transcends It’s State-Supported Origins
April 10, 2014 - Producer Aaron Levinson is back with a new Latin Roots segment on Nueva Trova, a style of music that started in Castro's Cuba in the 1960's but continues today. It started as a political music celebrating the ideals of the revolution but the music lives on, not just in Cuba but abroad.
Aaron will play us some surprising examples.
