Talking Musical Revolutions Goes Latin

If you haven’t been to one of Gavin Martin’s Talking Musical Revolutions events before, now’s your big chance. October 14th, upstairs at the Charterhouse, 38 Charterhouse Street, Smithfield, London EC1. Not only that, but how often do you get the opportunity to strut around in your cuban heels? Here’s the deal:

Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera will talk about his new album Corroncho and play a little on his Cuban 58 acoustic guitar.

Corroncho

A night of Latin Music, Talks, Big Screen Videos and A Little Live Music

John Armstrong on Orishas – the interchange between Africa and Latin Music

Sue Steward on Celia Cruz The Queen of Salsa.

James Maycock on the life – and death – of The Boogaloo, New York Latin.

Will Hodgkinson on Tropicalia, the Brazilian Psychedelia that sparked a revolution.

And if you want to remind yourself of what Phil Manzenera was up to in the 1970s, let Pete remind you here.
