Our 5 piece band Feel The Manouche has been invited to the Havana International Jazz Festival in Cuba.
This is taking place in December 2015.
We are one of the first Australian bands to receive such an invitation. Our band has been performing for 4 yrs.
My two sons Arthur & Jerry are on board. The wonderful Clare O'Meara & Stan Valacos. We have performed at many festivals around Australia.

Antony Gullick, Managing Director at Cuban Cultural Travel, is our man on the ground in Cuba. He taught for 25yrs at Kirrawee High in Sydney and now runs cultural tours of Cuba.
He is the one who managed to secure us an invitation to the Havana Jazz Festival.

We are thrilled to be able to take part in this cultural exchange and be ambassador's for Australia.
Music being the international language we are looking forward to meeting musicians from the rich
Cuban heritage.
