Havana Meets Kingston

Over two years in the making, Havana Meets Kingston is the project by visionary Australian musician and producer Mista Savona, who has brought two amazing musical cultures together in a world first.

Recorded in Havana, the Havana Meets Kingston album features some of Jamaica’s greatest musicians including Sly & Robbie, Prince Alla and Bongo Herman, alongside Buena Vista Social Club musicians Barbarito Torres and Rolando Luna as well as Cuba’s most influential percussionist Changuito (Los Van Van) and so many more.

The album consists of mostly original songs, as well as covers of classic Cuban material.

The first single Carnival, featuring British-Jamaican singer Randy Valantine and Cuban singer Solis, was released in February 2017 and made waves across the UK and Europe.

It remains in the Global Reggae and iTunes (World Music) charts and David Rodigan (BBC) is a big supporter. In October Savona hits Australian shores with the high energy Havana Meets Kingston Sound System, presenting unreleased tracks with live vocals by Randy Valentine (Jamaica) and Solis (Cuba) alongside live percussion.

Whether you love Reggae, Cuban or just dancing this will be a very unique and exciting show. Havana Meets Kingston will be staged at the Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns on Saturday the 21st of October.
