Part of Sounds In The Round 2007
27th Ska Cubano : Sounds In The Round 2007 Open Air Arena @ mac 7.30pm

Ska Cubano’s compulsively danceable sound melds the classic 50s and 60s dance sounds of Jamaica with the vibrant rumba and salsa rhythms of Cuba. Featuring ‘Natty Bo, a white Londoner who speaks in a Jamaican accent and wears brilliant mohair zoot suits and is the kind of character novelist Colin MacInnes once celebrated. Matching him is Beny Billy, a black Cuban singer who favours patterned black zoot suits and sings like an angel. Together they’re a musical Butch and Sundance, flashy characters who stand alone amongst the dowdy chaps of contemporary British music. Ska Cubano’s big hearted and very bright joy is to be applauded.’
