One of the most frequent questions we’re asked at the shop is “what is this fabulous music?!” So we’ve decided that every month we would list ten of our favorite tracks, songs which are invariably streaming from our speakers and through the store. Music to inspire, to get the juices flowing and the day or night! As they say, music is the language of the universe.
Be sure to follow along on Spotify so we can share the love and see what you’re listening to!
Beyond the Mambo, guitar strumming streets of Communism, Cuba hides one of the richest fields of design and interior inspiration. Earth tones merge naturally into bright pastels and woods and metals collide in a look that can only be called organic industrial.
Design elements throughout Cuba infuse native island culture, African sentiments and Spanish colonialism. All this and with a twist of Art Deco. What may appear gaudy on the surface, is far deeper and more charming in its depths and we’ve just begin to plunge into this extraordinary sea. We eagerly await for Cuban/American relations to soothe as more and more of the tiny Caribbean island comes into the spotlight
So pour yourself a Cuba Libre (recipe below) let the tunes flow* and dive into the world of Cuban design.
