The run down Havana oozes character and music. Just about everywhere you go there’s someone playing music mostly what’s called son, made popular worldwide by Buena Vista Social club. There was a band in every restaurant, every club, every bar and on on almost every street corner including these old guys in the the Catedral de la Habana plaza. The guy on the right with the glasses looks pretty disinterested. Not really sure what instrument he was playing but they all sounded pretty good!
