We are hugely grateful NYU Music + Social Change Lab and Ableton for participating in this year's workshop programme. Carlos Chirinos from NYU delivered a specially tailored lecture for Cuban artists and music entrepreneurs, while Ableton sent out a certified trainer to host intimate workshops, visit studios, and share knowledge with the producers of Santiago. Music hardware companies, Elektron, Native Instruments and Vermona, also donated equipment for the local studios.


"Fue una experiencia llena de sentimientos encontrados [...] Una semana de Workshops, se sintieron como 2 años de experiencias comprimidas en 2 tragos de ron."
