"The Rock Revolution with Rolling Stones" 
 Making history in Cuba


“Finally, the times are changing... this is a new time” said  Mick Jagger on Rolling Stones Concert at Cuba.


On 1 March, the band announced they would be playing a bonus show, a free open air concert in Havana, Cuba on 25 March. This was seen as a big occasion, as this was one of the first times foreign rock music was allowed to be performed in the country in over half a century. The concerts have been made possible by the recent thaw in relations with the communist country and the United States. President Obama, recently announced a ground breaking visit to Cuba in the spring of 2016, approximately three days before the Rolling Stone arrive in Havana.President Obama will be the first United States President to visit Cuba since the Cuban Revolution in 1959.

The Rolling Stones will perform in Havana, Cuba on March 25th 2016. For the first time since the Cuban revolution in 1959, a major international performance artist will step into the communist nation and entertain a generation of people who have never witnessed a musical performance of such magnitude. Fittingly, there is no bigger band than the Rolling Stones to introduce rock and roll to the Cuban people. Read full article via classicrockhistory.com

The Rolling Stones  said,  “We have performed in many special places during our long career but this show in Havana is going to be a landmark event for us, and, we hope, for all our friends in Cuba too.”

The Rolling Stones are notable in modern popular music for assimilating various musical genres into their own collective sound. Throughout the band's career, their musical contributions have been marked by a continual reference and reliance on musical styles including blues, rhythm and blues, country, folk, reggae, dance, and world music, exemplified by Jones' collaboration with the Master Musicians of Jajouka, as well as traditional English styles that use stringed instrumentation like harps. Brian Jones experimented with the use of non-traditional instruments such as the sitar and slide guitar in their early days. The group started out covering early rock 'n' roll and blues songs, and have never stopped playing live or recording cover songs.

 The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Stewart was removed from the official line-up in 1963 but continued as an occasional pianist until his death in 1985. Jones departed the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who remained until 1975. Subsequently, Ronnie Wood has been on guitar in tandem with Richards. Following Wyman's departure in 1993, Darryl Jones has been the main bassist. Other notable keyboardists for the band have included Nicky Hopkins, active from 1967 to 1982, Billy Preston through the mid 1970s (most prominent on Black and Blue) and Chuck Leavell, active since 1982. The band was first led by Jones but after teaming as the band's songwriters, Jagger and Richards assumed de facto leadership.
