During Hispanic Heritage month, we took the discussion of cultura from Ariel Fernandez Diaz, one of my favorite DJs in DC promoting Afro-Cuban culture and music.
Ariel is the most culturally informed and opinionated DJ you will find. His expertise expands over decades playing a pivotal role in the shaping and documenting of Cuban hip-hop music. Ariel makes us aware of of the amalgam between Cuban politics and culture in Cuban rap music…or as Ariel calls it, rather, a “revolution within a revolution”.
Check out a short clip of his commentary and don’t miss watching the last two air dates tonight and Sunday, October 10th at 10 pm.
