Boston Globe celebrates World Music/CRASHarts

A message from our Executive Director, Maure Aronson:

"So much has changed in 25 years. From discovering new artists on cassette tapes to YouTube links. What has not changed is the fantastic music and dance that artists create and that we have the opportunity to share with the adventurous and amazing audiences of greater Boston. Thanks to all the artists, agents, managers, crew, funders, fellow globalistas and the most amazing staff, volunteers and interns that have made us who we are today. Hope to see many Boston friends at CRASHfest and other concerts this winter and spring."

To hold you over, I thought I'd share the recipe's that participants in our Cuban Connection class at the Boston Center for Adult Education were shown from travel writer Annie B. Copps. I tasted the Cuban sandwich and mojito first-hand, and I guarantee you, they were both insanely delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about them...
