Singer-songwriter and author based in New York City.

Somebody has said I'm one of the most unclassifiable talents in the late-twentieth- century New York music scene--quite a statement, considering that New York new music specializes in unclassifiable talents. My forte is the unlikely combination of Cuban and country styles. Better known as a singer-songwriter (my 1999 Palm Pictures album Cowboy Rumba reached #1 on the World Music Charts Europe), I went to Cuba in January 1990 to explore the then-unknown (in the U.S.) music scene there. Like many people who go to Cuba, I found it a life-changing experience. My life is divided into before and after that first trip to Cuba. I'm the author of “The World That Made New Orleans: From Spanish Silver to Congo Square”, “Cuba and Its Music: From the First Drums to the Mambo” and ”The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans”.
