Manana features in Resident Advisor's Top 10 festivals for May 2016! In their words:
The end of the US embargo of Cuba was an historic event, and Manana festival is taking the opportunity to bring the island's rich music culture into contact with electronic music from across the globe. Running from May 4th to 6th in Santiago De Cuba, Manana will pair local artists with international guests for collaborative performances that'll see unknown Afro-Cuban artists interacting with names like Plaid. Gifted & Blessed is one of those teaming with Cuban musicians, while On-U Sound head Adrian Sherwood will perform with Skip McDonald. A Guy Called Gerald and Nicolas Jaar are two of the biggest acts on the bill, but it's the local artists who'll give Manana its unique flavour.
RA Pick: Ariwo is a Cuban/Iranian trio that sounds like Shackleton stranded on a desert island.
