1. New A17 Schedule for From the Isle of Music including the addition of SpaceLine
From the Isle of Music, Week of April 2-8, 2017
Our A17 Season begins April 2 with a new schedule, and our first episode will be a re-broadcast of our special about Grupo de Experimentación Sonora del ICAIC, a supergroup from the 1970s whose many important members influenced the future course of Jazz, Nueva Trova, Fusion, Concert and cinematic music in Cuba. With special guest Pablo Menéndez, a member of GESI (In English) and some seldom-heard selections by the group.
