Rotating Slot: Island Time & An Irish Show
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 mid 20th century Cuba showed up in forms and recording around the globe. “Island time” is an exploration of that soundscape and culture, from the first recordings to the present day.
