From the Isle of Music, September 3-9:
This week, our special guest is Grupo Vocal Sampling, a unique acappella group who is this year’s Cubadisco winner in the Vocal/Choral Music category. We visited them in Havana during a rehearsal in May. Among other things, they demonstrate how they make their wonderful music. Also, a musical tribute to the late Lourdes Torres, a wonderful Cuban singer/songwriter who passed away last month.
