Rhythms and Songs of Cuba
recorded live on Tizita Radio for dublab



TIZITA RADIO is sublime music inspired by the joy of remembering, and the feeling of longing for something that will never return.

For this episode of Tizita Radio, Rani de Leon shares rhythms and songs from Cuba. While he has always had an affinity for various styles of Cuban music, it wasn’t until a trip to the island in 2012 that he briefly experienced the potency of some of the sacred music, visiting ceremonies and capturing field recordings from the east side of the island. This led to a newfound sensitivity to the societal and spiritual functions of these rhythms. It is in this spirit of reverence that this music is shared.
