Major Lazer became one of the first major U.S. acts to play in Cuba since the restoration of diplomatic relations, reportedly drawing an estimated 400,000 attendees in Havana.

"It's kind of an amazing opportunity," Diplo tells Rose. "I also think that it's very important to create something new. That's why I first started to make music... I think now it's important to keep those dialogues happening, those parties happening. That's what we're doing here in Havana."
