Last time, I received a question where I got these information from. I am studying Afro-Cuban music almost 20 years. I went to Cuba, took classes from many different instructor (including Giovanni Hidalgo), and have many information. I cannot tell which information came from where anymore. I started this blog to share my information to make easier to access this wonderful music to many people. So if you have any comments, please send to me. Thank you.
