Album of the Month: Two Beats, One Soul celebrates a glorious musical marriage

Recently we reviewed one of the most ambitious new albums to come out in awhile. At a time of strife around the world, Two Beats, One Soul arrives, a 13 track album showcasing the fusion of Cuban and American music. The album, executive produced by Ray Chew and Vivian Scott Chew along with their partners Mark and Kathy Grier, celebrates and explores the evolution of two cultures, focused on Cuba’s impact on worldwide music by recreating traditional Cuban sounds and rhythms in today’s musical landscape.
