In the fortnight before the festival seven collaborations were prepared between international electronic and local folkloric and contemporary Cuban musicians. Rehearsals were organised in theatres, jazz clubs, and community spaces throughout the city with translators and producers on-hand to support the creative process.  The majority of these were also recorded in the world famous EGREM studios. Below are photos from Plaid, Quantic, Soundspecies, Sherwood, Pouya Ehsaei & Nicolas Jaar's sessions.

 

"It was life changing. Can't wait to get back to mixing the work and Cuba. Thanks for everything!"
