Sept. 8th: KQED Broadcast of Conexiones: A Cuban Mexican Connection

The San Francisco Bay Area’s major Public Broadcasting station, KQED (plus KQEH in the South Bay, and KQET in Monterey) will air our film Conexiones: A Cuban Mexican Connection on Saturday, September 8th, at 6pm.

Conexiones is an hour-long documentary chronicling the our 2016 tour of Cuba. The film captures a unique glimpse into Cuban cultural life during an historic time of openness between the United States and Cuba. We were granted rare access to perform traditional Mexican music in four cities around Cuba where they engaged with Cuban musicians from a variety of walks of life. There we discovered the richness of Cuban culture and Cuba’s deep affection for and fascination with Mexican culture. The film is a poignant statement on the importance of cultural exchange, identity and openness at a time of uncertainty in U.S, Cuban relations.
