Listen to Cuban National Poet Nancy Morejon discuss AfroCuban culture in Cuba, in English in an interview with Block Radio ( while she was in San Francisco last year.

It's a half hour recording and she reads some of her poetry towards the end of the show.

She is pretty magnificent as she educates the interviewer on artist Wifredo Lam, musicians Chucho Valdes, Chano Pozo, Omara Portuondo and many other Cubans who have played key parts in the formation of culture in the US, let alone Cuba.
