The emergence of Ska Cubano is the creation of an alternative cultural history. The mission was led by Peter Scott of casinosounds and Natty Bo of London ska band, 'Top Cats', who went to Santiago de Cuba, the Caribbean capital of the east (oriente) of Cuba and the cradle of almost all the best Cuban music, to preach ska. After several visits, ska culture was established in Santiago, with great new arrangements of Cuban classics and bands performing to a growing following. The cream of the musicians then came together to perform a ska supergroup, Ska Cubano!
