Jazz Caliente: Cuba's SOS, in song

A street in Havana, Cuba

ICYMI: The long-suffering people of Cuba have had enough. And, as always, Cuba's musicians and artists lead the way.

My one and only trip to Cuba (so far) revealed to me the extremes of the country: the beautiful, resilient, brilliant people and their arts, and the grinding poverty and brutality of their everyday lives.

This is their anthem right now: "Patria y Vida"

And this comes from their souls:

Help them.

Jazz Caliente airs Saturdays at 5 p.m. The show is hosted by Robin Lloyd and produced by KNKX Public Radio.
