The main recording sessions took place over 10 days in June 2015 at the famous Egrem Studio in Havana, Cuba.
Savona personally flew seven Jamaicans into Havana for these sessions, including Sly & Robbie, Boopee and Bongo Herman among other greats.

In the studio they joined Buena Vista Social Club musicians Barbarito Torres and Rolando Luna,
alongside Cuba’s most influential percussionist Changuito (Los Van Van) and so many more.
