In this collaboration we feature two musical storytellers.  Armandito García is known for his blend of the Eastern Cuban Changüí style with the commanding voice of his trumpet.  Wang Zheng-Ting is an innovator of the Chinese sheng mouth organ and di flute.  Both artists use music to teach about their cultures, traditions, and migration experiences.  Renowned percussionist Michael Spiro joins Adrian Hearn (drums), Rodolfo “Panga” Hechavarría (percussion), Tina Harris (bass), and Lautaro Veloso (piano) in this trans-Pacific exploration.
