havana cultura launches remixing competition
Cuban rum maker Havana Club invites DJs, producers, and music enthusiasts to remix a track for a chance to spend ten days in Havana—one of the world’s music capitals—producing and recording original tracks alongside Cuban musicians under the expert guidance of renowned DJ Gilles Peterson.

The competition is open to candidates of all levels of experience having reached legal drinking age in their country of residence. To enter, future contenders must visit www.havanaculturamix.com and follow instructions to submit their remix of the track ‘Agita’ (Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura Band featuring El Micha and Osdalgia). They may choose between using their own remixing software or the online tool available on the application. In order to increase their chances of making it to the final round, participants are encouraged to share their remixes with friends and obtain votes. Gilles Peterson will listen to the finalist remixes and select the group of winners that will travel to Havana. 

For four years now, world-renowned DJ and tastemaker Gilles Peterson has collaborated with Havana Cultura—Havana Club’s global platform for the promotion of contemporary Cuban creativity— to reveal the very best of Havana’s contemporary music scene through an acclaimed albums series and concert tours. This competition marks the next step in Havana Club’s commitment to sharing the vibrancy of the Cuban capital’s cultural scene with international audiences by fostering collaborative experiences that bring together Cuban artists and talents from around the world. 

Entries open on 5th February 2014 and close on 2nd April 2014.
