Santiago de Cuba and Son Music

World Routes, in Cuba Episode 1 of 3

In the first of three programmes recorded on location in Cuba, Lucy Duran embarks on a 1000-mile road journey in search of the musical roots of this very musical island.

She begins her exploration of Cuban music in Santiago de Cuba, the sizzling eastern city that’s both the birthplace of son and the cradle of the Fidel Castro’s Revolution.
