Today on show we have a very special guest with us, singer-songwriter CuCu Diamentes.

Back in 2003 CuCu co-founded the Grammy nominated Latin fusion band, Yerba Buena. On March 17th she'll be releasing her solo debut album entitled CuCuLand, (available via iTunes).

MTV called CuCu's style of music a cross between "downtown new york city funk and Cuban glamour and passion."

What you won't read on MTV though is that CuCu is also deeply passionate about raw foods, holistic health, essential oils and social responsibility.

A few months ago I met CuCu at a book launch party for my friend Dr Frank Lipman. It was there that I immediately new I had to introduce her music to the We Like It Raw community. Just as it's so important to be intentional with what food you put in your mouth, it's also just as important to surrounded yourself with uplifting music from soulful spirits.

Today in our interview CuCu talks about her music, the motivation behind it, her passion for holistic living and the important of giving back.

CuCu's album release party will be hosted in NYC on March 19th at The Bowery Ballroom at 8pm. More details and tickets here.

We'll be giving away two tickets to our NYC crew to CuCu's show. If you're interested in coming drop us a comment here and tell us what world music inspires you. We'll pick two winners on Wednesday morning and notify you via email.
