I've got Cuba on my mind.

This Sunday is Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club concert day! I'm incredibly excited for this performance by the legendary Cuban group, and I'm even more excited to have more Cuban culture just a few weeks later when Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba comes into town to perform Cuba Vibra at the Emerson/Cutler Majestic Theatre. While Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club is sold out, get your Cuba fix November 7 and 8 with Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba, direct from Havana, performing with an on-stage big band!

To hold you over, I thought I'd share the recipe's that participants in our Cuban Connection class at the Boston Center for Adult Education were shown from travel writer Annie B. Copps. I tasted the Cuban sandwich and mojito first-hand, and I guarantee you, they were both insanely delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about them...

Brazilian Music Camp

Hi friends! A member of our CRASHers Council (supporters of our series of social events for culturally adventerous greater Bostonians, ages 21-40) participated in this incredible Brazilian music camp in California this summer. We were intrigued... and so we asked her to write a guest blog post about her experience! Next summer, I may insist she take my with her! Enjoy.

This August, I attended a week-long camp that brought together many aspects of the Brazilian musical community (drumming, dancing, singing) all in a beautiful secluded Redwood grove a few hours away from San Francisco, California.
