PBS Presents HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON live. The 15 piece ‘Super group’ will launch in Australia and New Zealand, on tour in March 2018. Playing The Forum, Melbourne Thursday March 15, 2018

A soundclash with a difference, bringing roots reggae, dub and dancehall together with son, salsa and rumba. The HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON band boasts the heavyweight rhythm section of Sly & Robbie and a formidable lineup of musicians including Barbarito Torres and Rolando Luna from Buena Vista Social Club, alongside members from Los Van Van, Chucho Valdes and Inna de Yard. Emerging artists featured with the band are the hot new talents of Randy Valentine, Solis and Brenda Navarette.

HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON, is the launch of the new album release of the same name by Australia’s leading reggae and dancehall producer Mista Savona (aka Jake Savona). The innovative, culture-centric album pairs legendary and emerging Cuban and Jamaican musicians to reimagine classic songs and create new compositions, infused with Jamaican reggae and dancehall, traditional Cuban and Afro-Cuban rhythms. HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON is the first full-length project to present the blended sounds of these two distinct island nations supported by an all-star cast of musicians.

For generations, Cuba and Jamaica have been at the forefront of trends in music, art, fashion and food throughout the Americas. HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON meshes these musical pathways, effortlessly blending Cuban rhythms and melodies with reggae's rumbling basslines and hypnotic drums, resulting in an exceptional listening experience.
