Havana Meets Kingston, The Best of Both Worlds, Reggae Compilation
Havana Meets Kingston is
a compilation project that focuses on bringing the “best of both
worlds” through the music cultures of, Cuba and Jamaica, something that
has never been done before.
(aka Mista Savona) saw an opportunity to marry both islands’
outstanding music styles by bringing a host of legendary and influential
artistes together in one place to produce tracks in Spanish, English
and Jamaican patois. The project features over 50 Cuban, Jamaican and
International artistes such as Gaston Joya, Brenda Navarette, Julito
Padron, Beatriz Marquez, Leroy Sibbles, Lutan Fyah, Randy Valentine,
Micah Shemiah, Cali P and Glasford ‘Porti’ Manning & The Jewels. The
main goal was to “bring Jamaican sound system and bass culture together
with Cuba’s electrifying and virtuosic Afro-Cuban and jazz traditions”
and the end product was phenomenal.
combination of Jamaican roots reggae, dub and dancehall with Cuban
salsa, rumba and Afro-Cuban sounds has created a collaboration that,
according to one of the contributors involved, is both fun and fresh.
The dynamic duo Sly & Robbie, Bongo Hermon and Bo Peep have all
contributed their music styles to this project and visited Cuba in order
to record with musicians there.
on the project Sly said “It was a great experience working on this
musical venture; I got to work with some very talented people from here
in Jamaica and in Cuba. This offering is something very new and at the
same time deeply rooted, cultured and bold.”
The first single off the album is Carnival which features British-Jamaican singer Randy Valentine and Cuban singer Solis.
by VPal Music, the album was released in in two parts - the first in
November 2017 and the second in March 2018. Following its release, many
of the musicians came together and embarked on a 3 week tour in
Australia and New Zealand.
promotional plans include an album launch to be done later on in
Jamaica. A documentary capturing various aspects of the project’s
development in both Jamaica and Cuba has also been created, with
contributions from filmmaker Rick Mereki, producer Lauren Rosa Beck and
photographer Lara Merrington.
