Continuing his longstanding love affair with Cuba and its musical melting pot, globetrotting DJ / broadcaster Gilles Peterson is back with a new chapter in his Havana Cultura album series – producing an original studio album on CD01 and lovingly curating a compilation of new Cuban talent on CD02.

Back in 2009 Gilles teamed up with the award-winning Cuban jazz pianist Roberto Fonseca to find the very best up and coming musical talent in Havana. ‘Havana Cultura: New Cuba Sound’ represented the biggest collection of contemporary Cuban musicians in a single musical initiative since the highly acclaimed Buena Vista Social Club project in 1997.

“Having spent the last three years travelling regularly to Havana I’ve understandably become more attached to this fascinating, almost otherworldly city” comments Gilles Peterson. “I’m also slowly getting to grips with the relationship music has here with the spirits and its people… the drum goes deep”

Returning to Havana in search of fresh talent in 2011 with co-producers Vince Vella (a veteran from the first album) and Simbad (Gilles’ production partner in his remixing endeavours) in tow, Gilles was adamant that this new collection evolve and push things forwards: “I wanted to retain the ‘anything can happen’ spirit of the first session, but this time with a maturing Cubanism.”
