NOTD 1.10.10 Cuba

I am going to keep Cuba short. You should know a little bit about our relationship with our neighbors to the south already.

The Republic of Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean. It consists of the island of Cuba, the Isla de la Juventud, and several archipelagos. Havana is the largest city in Cuba and the country's capital. Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city.
Population: 11,451,652
Major Crop Exports: sugar, nickel, tobacco, fish, medical products, citrus, coffee

"Chan Chan" is a result of the magical reforming of Buena Vista Social Club. Previously in a period of diaspora, BVSC was reassembled and directed by musical renaissance man, Ry Cooder. The result was the self-titled Buena Vista Social Club. "Chan Chan" goes down like a dark coffee liqueur. It's tones are dark but its melody and musicianship is languid and entrancing.
