Esta Noche/TONITE: Saturday, October 31st!


This month’s Radio Cuba Canta has a potpurri that we hope you will enjoy. Beginning with some musica guajira with Nico Saquito, then we move to some great Conjuntos like Casino, Kubavana, and some nice surprises. Later we get into a Charanga vein then on to some live airchecks from the 1950s building up to one of the most important descargas ever recorded. Following the Community Music Calender, we conclude the show with some great contemporary Cuban music.

Benny Moré: 90th Birthday Broadcast Tribute – Saturday, August 29, 2009

Posted onAugust 30, 2009

Esta Noche/TONITE: Saturday, August 29th!

This week, Radio Cuba Canta broadcasts a special tribute commemorating the 90th Birthday of “El Barbaro del Ritmo”, Benny Moré!


Broadcast veteran and Cuban music historian Emiliano Echeverria will present his rare and vintage collection of Benny Moré, from his earliest recordings with the Conjunto Matamoros in 1945 to his final recording made in his home a few weeks before his death in 1963.

We will feature Benny with popular orchestras of the late 40s and early 50s in Mexico and Cuba, including Rafael de Paz, Mariano Mercerón, Conjunto Humberto Cane, Ernesto Duarte, and, of course, Damaso Perez Prado. In addition, we will feature Benny’s Banda Gigante in both studio and live settings, as well as seldom heard recordings from early in Benny Moré’s career.
