Live from Havana – A GLOBAL Musical HOMAGE PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE HUMANITY & SOLIDARITY OF THE HEALTH BRIGADES

About this Event

Cultural organizers from the US and Canada have come together with the Instituto Cubano de la Musica (ICM) in Cuba to host a special tribute recognizing the distinct contributions to the world during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The concert will salute Cuba’s heroic and outsized contributions to health care around the world as doctors have volunteered this year to serve in more than 26 countries. 

The two-day cultural event will feature the legendary talent nurtured on Cuban soil and recognized world-wide as virtuoso artists. Musicians located outside of Cuba influenced by numerous Afro-Cuban styles or who are playing in solidarity with the aims of the event are also participating.  The roster of talent amassed for this historic event signifies the concert as one of music history’s most memorable gatherings.

Interspersed with the music, tributes by long-time friends of Cuba, other artists, politicians in the US, religious leaders, academics, and activists will join the program to make remarks and offer context to the program.
The program will broadcast LIVE from Havana’s Instituto Cubano de la Musica and from points around the globe while physical distancing is still observed.
