Listening again ;-)

This evening your music seems more appealing to me. I am chatting to my Novia now and mentioned the bachata / sals etc. She is from Cartagena, Colombia and tells me that the music there is quite similar. Dave

Hi to Kerry and dj Hughie.

I don't doubt loads of people have sent messages of support and love to Cuba. I'd just like to add mine and send love and best wishes to the August '17 Key2Cuba group, wonderful people, and of course the terrific Raices Profundas dancers, Henry our photographer and all the amazing people we met out there just a week before Irma hit. Thinking of you all xx Jenny Humphries
