Gerry Lyseight – Phonic FM – 20/3/22

The pic is me with the legendary Cuban bassist, and co-inventor of the Mambo rhythm, Cachao, when he played his final London show which took place at the Barbican in 2007. It was an honour to meet him and a dream come true to see him play live! He’s playing on the Hector Rivera track.
