Have taught Cuban Music to children. I have also organised small trips to Cuba in the past before the rise of tourism there. Have written about Latin Music, and I am passionate about singing and encouraging everyone to sing. I formally ran " singing for the terrified" at the Mary Ward Centre, in addition to a world music choir. I Have been a practitioner of Santeria since 1986.
