Cuba and the Caribbean - the Latin Sound
The Latin sound of the Caribbean has exerted a tremendous influence on popular music around the world. Latin rhythms can be heard underpinning the music of places as far apart as Zaire, London and New York.
At the centre of the Latin sound is the Caribbean island of Cuba. It was here that
African drums first combined with Spanish guitars to produce a new musical hybrid. Tonight's programme looks at the range of music that has come out of Cuba, including son, salsa and Latin jazz.
Panamanian salsa star and politician Ruben Blades talks to dub poet Linton Kwesi
Johnson about the roots of these different styles of music and demonstrates the rhythms that drive them along. Then one of the premier exponents of the Latin sound, trumpeter
Arturo Sandoval , gives an electrifying performance in which he mixes the sophisticated rhythms of salsa with the technique of Dizzy Gillespie.
