Just before we left for Cuba to record for this podcast, Brooklyn Raga Massive’s Raga Cubana feat. Roman Diaz, had an intimate concert to get ready for our sold out concert a month later at the Rubin Museum of Art.
Here we are trying new things and feeling the hometown energy and love from the Raga Massive Jam Session at the Art Cafe
We hang out with Olivier Conan, the band leader of Chicha Libre, and the owner of Brooklyn’s most beloved listening room, Barbes. We’ll hear some of the smoking tracks from his group and his Barbes Records label and get his take on what’s happening in the world.
