I loved the Havana Club rum, it was one of the finest drinks we could have back in the 80’s. Now by remixing a track you have the chance to travel to one of the world’s music capitals to produce and record original tracks with a selection of Cuba’s finest musicians under the expert guidance of DJ Gilles Peterson.
Winners will spend ten days in the city of Havana producing original new music in the studio with executive producer Gilles Peterson and local musicians. A selection of the tracks resulting from the studio sessions will be compiled later in the year. When not in the studio, winners will be free to explore Havana’s sights, sounds and unique culture scene. All travel and living expenses as well as production and studio costs will be covered by Havana Club.
Not surprisingly, residents and citizens of the United States of America cannot participate in the Havana Club Cultura Mix Contest while each participant can simultaneously upload several remixes. Enter and more about the contest here.
