 In 2013, KPLU listeners embarked on an in-depth cultural exploration of the isle of Cuba. Participants enjoyed the rhythms of Latin jazz and the beat of hot salsa songs. In addition guests visited the National Museum of Fine Arts and Cuba’s leading music school. Together we strolled through Old Havana, enjoying salsa dancing lessons, visited Hemingway’s home and enjoyed outings to jazz clubs. Escape the cold grey days of winter with KPLU and enjoy the magic of Cuba before it changes forever. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the best of Havana and Southern Cuba with KPLU!
