u.s. musicians to appear in cuba

miami (reuters) - american musicians will spend march 21-28 in
havana writing songs with cuban performers and will put on a
joint concert for an expected crowd of more than 40,000 in
havana, the project's organizer said monday.


"this will be a week of co-writing with famous u.s. and cuban
artists, culminating in participation in an open-air concert
for the cuban people," the group, the los angeles-based music
bridge, said in a statement posted on its web site.


confirmed american artists include mick fleetwood from
fleetwood mac, andy summers from the police and pop singer
lisa loeb, the group said.


none of the performers will get paid for the songwriting week
or the concert, to be held at havana's karl marx theater,
according to an article in monday's miami herald.


the article also said that jimmy buffett, joan osborne, former
public enemy leader chuck d, the indigo girls and peter buck
of r.e.m. had confirmed their attendance, and organizers were
talking with peter gabriel, bonnie raitt, sting and paddy
maloney of the chieftains.


the united states has imposed a strict trade embargo against
cuba since 1962, but changes in cuban policy within the past
two years have allowed more cultural exchange with the
communist-ruled caribbean island.


music bridges was created in 1988 by songwriter/producer alan
roy scott to organize a u.s. musical collaboration with soviet
musicians. similar events have been held in bali, romania and
ireland.
