Havana Meets Kingston Sound System Tour
Over two years in the making HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON is the project by visionary Australian producer Mista Savona, bringing two amazing musical cultures together in a world first fusion record. It features some of Jamaica’s greatest musicians including Sly & Robbie, Prince Alla and Bongo Herman, alongside Buena Vista Social Club musicians Barbarito Torres and Rolando Luna, Cuba’s most influential percussionist Changuito (Los Van Van) and so many more.
The HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON project has started to launch to the world on the live scene. Mista Savona and Randy Valentine played shows together in Europe this Summer, promoting the project for the first time. Proving to be a real joy for both Savona and Valentine, the performances were very high energy.
Over two years in the making, HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON will be released in two parts – Album #1 on November 3rd 2017, with album #2 and a feature documentary following in 2018.
In October the Havana Meets Kingston Sound System show featuring Randy Valentine (JA) and Solis (CU) will hit Australian shores to bring this ultimate fusion to life. Solis will be flying direct from Cuba, to join Savona and Valentine on stage and it’s the first time key tracks form the forthcoming album will be performed as a live outfit. It’s going to be a very unique and exciting show!
