We are asking everyone who loves Cuban music and culture to help us and support the campaign.
World is Sound is also partnering with El Almacén to produce a series of documentary films and recording sessions focusing on the traditional music and dance traditions of Cuba as well as modern hip hop and reggaeton artists on the island. This is a very exciting project that will help further bridge the gap between Cuba and the US and benefits everyone through understanding of global arts and culture.
We are asking for donations of $10-$1000 to help bring Cameras to Cuba.
