This program is all about Cuban music: “Buena Vista Social Club: 15 years later”. A homage to and retrospective of this landmark recording originally issued on September 16, 1997. The literature segment presents the second and last part of “El Caballo de Troya”, a story from the Salvadorian “Radio Venceremos”.

New music from guitar greats Zani Diabate (Mali) and Manuel Gabon (Cuba), contemporary beats from Kenya and classics from Zimbabwe and South Africa are among the musical highlights on today’s show.
