Manana Festival Special on Resonance FM.
In this show, Daniel meets Harry Follett & Jenner del Vecchio, the British co-founders of Manana, Cuba’s first Afro-Cuban & electronic music festival. The show tells the story of how the festival came into being and what it has in store for the lucky punters who get tickets.
Manana Festival will take place in the musical heartland of Santiago de Cuba in May 2016. The line-up already boasts some of the masters of Santiago’s historic folkloric music scene, alongside pioneers of the UK music community like Plaid, Mala, Sofrito & Soundway. The show features a selection of unheard Cuban field recordings, Mexican House music and modern Puerto Rican rumba as they set the scene for next year’s event.
