Through the blog Negra cubana tenía que ser, I discovered to my delight that Radio Flora, a German radio station, has a Spanish language program called Buena Onda. The program runs Saturdays from 11:00-12:00 (in Germany) and seems to feature quite a lot of Cuban (and other Caribbean music). On Buena Onda, on every last Saturday of the month Sandra Abd’Allah-Álvarez Ramírez (Negra Cubana…)—a Cuban woman based in Hanover, Germany—features Cuban music on her show Y tenemos sabor.
At the end of October, she dedicated Y tenemos sabor to Cuban hip hop with a special program on the renowned Cuban group Krudas Cubensi. What’s even better news is that you can now listen to the podcasts of Y tenemos sabor—which can also be accessed from anywhere in Cuba—on the Mixcloud account Negracubana. I just listened to two of her shows and I highly recommend Y tenemos sabor.
As Sandra Abd’Allah-Álvarez Ramírez says, “And fasten your seatbelts because Las Krudas are not easy!”
