A writer named Lydia Cabrera went to Paris to study, started thinking about the beauty of Cuban culture and became a folklorist. She wrote, I discovered Cuba at the banks of the Seine River. The same thing happened to me here. In Cuba, I wanted to do American music. I think the first time I mixed one style with the other was when I arranged Mozarts Adagio for Irakere.
