Singer-songwriter and author based in New York City.
Somebody has said I'm one of the most unclassifiable talents in the late-twentieth-
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.
