Mode. Radio Weekly Mix #9--Gilles Petersen--Sounds of Cuba Podcast

For this week's mix (and in honor of Gilles Petersen's set in SF; which I missed because of mommy-ness), I stumbled upon this podcast called the Sounds of Cuba. After investigating, I found out that there is an effort to celebrate Cuban art and culture through a group called Havana-Cultura. Gilles' connection is that he has created 2 albums with the group and also hosted a remix contest of one of the tracks on the album. Enjoy this mix featuring Celia Cruz, Danay Suarez, and more!
