To take the pulse of the Cuban scene and for closer ties with the public of the island, Saturday, from 3:00 pm, at the Jose Marti Anti-Imperialist Tribune, you could enjoy the concert of Major Lazer, made up by American DJ, Diplo, -its leader- Walshy Fire, of Jamaican origin, and Cristopher Leacock (Jillionaire) from Trinidad and Tobago.
 
To forward details of the presentation, the artists explained on Saturday that for their performance four Cuban colleagues and the rumba group Osaín del Monte would be added.
 
As for this visit in Havana, Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known on stage as Diplo, said that since October 2014 were planning it and thanked the Cuban Institute of Music (ICM) for their support and making it possible.
 
Orlando Vistel, president of ICM, said that the work of Diplo and Major Lazer denoted by their interest in delving into the roots and encourages the public to be reunited with essences. "In them they match fame and talent," he stressed.
Meanwhile, Diplo also referred to the meeting held this Saturday with their Cuban peers and told our daily that they do not rule out any collaboration or recording project with artists of the Island.
 
"It was important to come to Cuba because Havana is one of the music capitals of the world", said the American DJ, Anglo-Saxon Grammy-winner this year for the single Where are u now, the result of a collaboration with Jack Ü and Justin Bieber. Diplo said he was surprised by the interest in electronic music in the Greater Antilles and claimed to have high expectations with his performance on Sunday.
