Our favourite world-music expert, Gilles Peterson has teamed up with Havana Club for a global remix competition.
Peterson, in partnership with the rum brand, is offering the chance to travel to one of the planet’s most unique and culturally-rich cities – Havana – to join him in recording original material with local musicians.
To enter, simply visit havanaculturamix.com and use the online tools to create your remix of Gilles Peterson’s ‘Agita’. If you want, you can use your own equipment to create a more detailed mix and submit this through the same portal.
Once you have entered, share your remix and get your mates to cast their votes. The finalists will be selected by a public vote and a panel of industry experts before Gilles selects the group of winners who will accompany him to Cuba.
“I’ve been lucky enough to work in Cuba with Havana Cultura and make four albums with not only the new generation of Cuban musicians, but some legends of the scene“ opined Peterson when discussing the project, ”I’m excited about Havana Club Cultura Mix. I can’t wait to collaborate with talented producers from around the world and some of Cuba’s finest musicians in one of the world’s music capitals. Winners can expect to make music that they will never, ever regret!”
