subject: [ig-news] a 7th ig mp3 download opportunity


thanks to another generous list person who has donated
server space, we now have a second site open, on which
the following files will be available for about a
week:


the white dot (3/16/88), blood and fire (bootleg cd),
shades of indigo (promo cd - sans tracks that were
taken directly from nomads*indians*saints).


the fan who donated the server space would like to keep
the ftp address private, and asks that you to email me
if you would like to get the address. to reduce the
amount of bandwidth used on this list, you will receive
the setlists when you email for the address.  


when you get the address, please do not post it on the
web, in email lists, or to news groups.


thank you,


janet

u.s., cuban musicians gather in havana to compose


by andrew cawthorne


havana (reuters) - if music be the food of love, play on, said
shakespeare.


apparently paying heed to the bard's advice, nearly 100 u.s. and cuban
musicians monday crossed the political divide between their nations to
start composing songs together in the largest such cultural exchange since
fidel castro's 1959 revolution.


the musicians -- including stars and lesser-known artists from jazz, pop,
rock and latin genres -- kicked off the week- long event in havana by
drawing lots to split into twos and threes, and work together composing
new songs.


the fruits of their labor will figure in an all-star, invitation-only,
concert at havana's karl marx theater to culminate the event sunday night.


''i believe that music is one powerful tool in the world, and can and
should be able to build bridges between peoples in a way that other things
cannot,'' said alan roy scott, whose los angeles-based group music bridge
is organizing the event.


on the 44-member u.s. side are artists like peter buck of r.e.m., jimmy
buffett, gladys knight, lisa loeb, amy ray from the indigo girls, james
taylor, and cuban-american musicians horacio hernandez and walfredo de los
reyes. they are accompanied by some british musicians including mick
fleetwood from fleetwood mac, and andy summers of the police.


cuba's 48 participants include some of the caribbean island's best-known
musicians such as carlos varela, cesar portillo de la luz, jose luis
crotes, juan formell of the van van, chucho valdes, and isaac delgado.


organizers insisted the event was a goodwill musical exchange only -- with
no political overtones.


''we are musicians, and we want to talk about music,'' said cuban artist
and event organizer amaury perez at a monday news conference.


music bridge's scott, who has organized similar events with romanian,
irish and russian musicians, added that the aim was to use music as a
''healing force'' which would ''shine a very bright light on the hope for
the future.''


the exchange is the largest of its kind between cuba and the united states
since they broke formal diplomatic ties soon after castro came to power
four decades ago. washington has maintained an economic embargo since then
in a bid to isolate and pressure castro and his one-party communist
system.


there have, however, been other bilateral musical exchanges over the
years: billy joel and others came about 20 years ago, some u.s. musicians
have been participating in the annual havana jazz festival, and u.s.
pianist byron janis gave a concert here earlier this month.


this week's event, titled ''music bridges...over troubled waters,''
coincides with the first visit in 40 years to cuba by a u.s. major league
baseball side. the baltimore orioles will arrive at the weekend to play a
cuban national side in a long- anticipated exhibition game, also scheduled
for sunday.


musicians participating in the bridges' event are not being paid for the
song-writing or the concert.
