@Gary i sure will be! I was actually in LA for a conference a month or so back and managed to hit some spots. The conference was in Little Tokyo, so I went to the ramen and udon spots there. Also did a number of tacos and used a J. Gold article for tips for the one night I could get to Koreatown

Cuba did a lot of humanitarian/financial/l aid in the 1960s-1980s, especially West Africa and Angola and Mozambique. That's how the sound spread. Vice versa, b/c a huge population were slaves, there music took rout, and after the revolution there was a reciprocal art/music exchange, officially, and naturally.

I'm also in Resonate.is, which is a new service with an interesting idea, but very little traffic. The idea is a) it's kind of a co-op b) listeners Stram to buy - the more you hear a song, the more you give the artists micropayments, until after a while, you actually 'own' it (whatever owning means).
