Gracing the current covers of Rhythms Magazine, Mixdown and Scenestr, it’s hard to miss the news that the 15 piece supergroup that is HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON is making their world debut live appearances in Australia and New Zealand in just 2 weeks – bringing audiences the very best of roots reggae, dub and dancehall together with the sublime sounds of son, salsa and rumba.
This powerhouse project is launching worldwide following the Australian / New Zealand dates with a European summer tour booked – including appearances at Boomtown UK and Reggae Sun Ska France – with more huge dates yet to be announced.
Boasting a world-class lineup of musicians including the legendary rhythm section of Sly & Robbie (JA), Band Leader Mista Savona (AU), Barbarito Torres and Rolando Luna (CU) from the Buena Vista Social Club, Julito Padron (CU) from Irakere, Yaroldy Abreu (CU) from Chucho Valdes, Randy Valentine (JA/UK), Brenda Navarette (CU), Solis (CU), Bopee from Inna de Yard (JA), Oliver Valdes (CU) and a supporting Australian Horn section – this all-star lineup is unlikely to ever be repeated here again.
