Dancing With Fidel

  • Sanctuary Publishing, London, 2002;
  • Jiri Vanek Publishing, Prague

Sensual, sexual, soulful and rhythmic, Cuban music - from its ethnic roots to the international successes of Gloria Estefan and the Grammy Award-winning Buena Vista Social Club -- has been the Cuban people's means of expression under one of the world's last communist regimes.

By talking to dozen's of ordinary Cubans and famous musicians about their daily lives, Dancing With Fidel paints an extraordinary picture of a society and its cultural history that has flourished through music, despite communist repression and western intransigence. The result is an honest, entertaining and informative account of what anyone traveling to the island can expect to find.
