Chart-topping New York post-punk group Blondie have more than 40 years of chart success under their belts and in 2019 they decided to travel to play some concerts in Havana Cuba. We speak with singer Debbie Harry about the warmth of the reception they received, about integrating local styles and musicians in their set and much more. A new EP is about to be released which shows the fruits of their labour.
Edited down for the Debbie Harry sections, including some of her thoughts on Amy Winehouse, which marked the 10th anniversary of her death at the time.
