Island Time

with Alejandro Puig

Saturdays at 1:00PM

Even though Alejandro was born is Cuba, he was not exposed to latin music until the American salsa boom of the 1970’s. It wasn’t until the first decade of our current century that his latin music flame was lit. A trip to the “homeland” fanned that flame into a serious passion. As he listened and explored more deeply, the influence of Cuba’s musical culture showed up in forms and recordings around the globe. Island Time is an exploration of that soundscape, from the first recordings to the present day.

Aside from being a lover of good latin music, Alejandro is also a grandfather, a father, a Tai Chi player, a professional violin maker, a novice poet, an avid cyclist, and a ridge dweller since his arrival in the Driftless 30 years ago. He inherited a huge vegetable garden from his late wife, Emily Bunting, and is taking his hard bumps re-learning how to grow things, Ouch!
