Havana Meets Kingston - Mista Savona
Australia’s leading reggae and dancehall producer and accomplished pianist, Mista Savona (aka Jake Savona), has gathered some of Cuba and Jamaica’s most influential musicians in the one recording studio to create a world first album. Despite their huge respective global appeal and geographical proximity, there has never been a full length album that unites the unique sounds of both Jamaican and Cuban music. This is a truly groundbreaking record and project that honours both islands’ incredible musical foundations and legacies while inspiring and creating something entirely new. Drawing from the styles the islands are best known for – roots reggae, dub and dancehall on one hand and son, salsa, rumba and Afro-Cuban on the other – ‘Havana Meets Kingston’ sees an incredible team of musicians come together to bend and twist genres effortlessly, and the results are exceptional.
