GROOVALIZACION RADIO  RECOMMENDS:
Mista Savona Havana Meets Kingston (Baco Records)

‘Havana Meets Kingston’ is an innovative, border-crossing album that brings together legendary and emerging Cuban and Jamaican musicians in a world first recording project. It turned out to be a huge celebration of the musical richness of both islands, covering classics like Chan Chan and Rastaman Vibration with great joy. From the liner notes: “The album simmers with an energy, warmth and sincerity that seems increasingly hard to find in this digital age. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou & Bosq – Bosq Meets Poly Rhythmo Uptown (Sol Power Sound)
Renegades of Jazz – Moyo Zaidi (Agogo Records)
