We allow ourselves the odd non-Cuban post, abd here’s one for May!

Take a independent minded island nation, a people with a talent for music and dance…

Irish music, as it really is

If you add rum and aguardiente, you get son and salsa, it’s Cuba! If you add stout and whiskey, you get jigs and reels, it’s Ireland!

Riverdance compared to Irish sean-nós, as about like Patrick Swayze vs. Cuban sabor ;-).  Forget the parodies of over-muscled dancers and music with the flavour boiled out of it  …here’s a taste of the real thing…
