MORE INFO

Havana Cultura: ¡Súbelo, Cuba! shines a light on Cuba’s fast-mutating, rhythmically- adventurous underground. Listen here. The project showcases an extended network of like- minded, forward-thinking musicians driving Cuba’s music forward. Following repeated trips to connect with venues, collectives and DJs, Peterson and Will LV – one half of LV, who’ve released on Hyperdub and Keysound amongst others – linked up with DJ Jigüe, a much- respected producer and DJ, whose Guampara Productions label has charted new directions for Cuban music. Havana Cultura: ¡Súbelo, Cuba! is a product of that environment: Afro-Cuban traditions inflected through a bigger frame of reference. It’s an approach which Jigüe defines as Afro-futurist-tropicalia, a term which nods to the balance underpinning his Guámpara collective. Holding their Cuban upbringings, laced with African-influenced rhythms, close to their chest, it’s a base from which to interweave myriad influences from elsewhere.
