From Cuba to Minnesota: The Birth of Charanga Tropical

Fifteen years ago, American musician Doug Little traveled Cuba to study Latin jazz. In Havana, he met a flute teacher who introduced him to a traditional Cuban musical style called “charanga.” Today, Little is the bandleader of Charanga Tropical, which is one of a just a handful of charanga ensembles in the United States. I reported this story for KFAI’s Minneculture. (Photo courtesy of Walter Horishnyk)
