WWNO Is Headed To Cuba, And We Want You To Join Our Travel Krewe!

Join WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio and fellow jazz lovers for a culturally-rich musical journey to Cuba!

Sponsored by famed Cuban musician Chucho Valdes and the Cuban Institute of Music, the International Jazz Festival of Havana showcases some of the biggest names in jazz, along with talented new artists. Enjoy the rhythm of Latin jazz in venues scattered throughout Havana.

In addition to the festival, we’ll visit the National Museum of Fine Arts, Hemingway’s haunts, spend an evening at the Buena Vista Social Club and attend a special jazz workshop with Cuban musicians. Stroll the famous Malecón, wander in the picturesque historic center of Havana, lounge in a doorway in your fedora and ride in a classic convertible, all to the sultry sounds of Cuban jazz!
