Los Primos has partnered with Honour Jazz as our Rafflebox recipient for the month of May
This month’s on-line 50/50 Raffle will support our efforts to repair instruments for donation to music schools
and cultural centres in Cuba. Since 1998 when Jeff and Amara Goodspeed first went to Cuba with 26 donated
instruments for the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory, Los Primos has delivered over 800 instruments to
organizations and musicians all over Cuba. See more details and some photos at www.losprimos.ca
We usually transport donated and repaired instruments with musicians and friends who are travelling to Cuba.
This has not been possible for well over a year now, as we all know. We have every expectation that we can
deliver some of these instruments in the late summer or autumn. But first we need to get them refurbished so
that they are in top playing condition. Your raffle ticket this month will help to repair some of the 100+
instruments that are ready to make their way to the Long and McQuade repair shop. The draw will be at the
beginning of June.
Los Primos is a not‐for‐profit organization. Our mission... to inspire, support, and promote live music, music
education, and social awareness, in Nova Scotia and in Cuba, through cultural exchange and intergenerational
learning. Music and music education in Nova Scotia have benefited greatly from our work. During these two
decades, we have helped music programs to raise more than $600,000 for their music projects and supplied
instruments to many local students in need. Clinics, workshops, and performances with Canadian and Cuban
students and professionals, playing together… provide learning experiences that last a lifetime!
