Neyda Martinez, Producer HABANA/HARLEM
Aaron Davis Hall (ADH) continues its 25th Anniversary season with the
premiere of HABANA / HARLEM. Two days of music, dancing and dialogues that highlight the routes and explosive new directions and cutting-edge trends of music from Cuban artists living in New York.
Aaron Davis Hall presents two days and two double bills of explosive
musical innovations rooted in Cuban flavor and influenced by New York’s diverse urban culture. From the roads of Habana to the streets of Harlem,
Afro-Cuban rhythms play an upbeat “clave” to the downbeat funk of jazz
and R & B.
Each Program $25 (Members $21)
PROGRAM I - Friday, October 28, 2005, 7:30 PM:
David Oquendo & Raices Habaneras, Latin Grammy nominee underscores the cultural significance of Afro-Cuban music for the future.
Lisandro Y Su Tratado emanates the infectious vibes of authentic Cuban
“Timba” music. Their rhythmic virtuosity will cause your feet to move and
hips to sway like you’re in the streets of Havana today.
PROGRAM II � Saturday, October 29, 2005, 7:30 PM :
The Cuban Cowboys serve up a capricious hybrid of tradition and revolt
fusing essences of Cuban Montuno and Guajiro with swooning surf guitars
and indie-flavored rock.

HABANA / HARLEM Update!
Film Screening & Panel Discussion $10 (Members $8.50)
(FREE for ticket holders of 10/28 or 10/29 programs).
Machito: A Latin Jazz Legacy, the film by Carlos Ortiz, is as relevant
today as it was at the time of its release almost 20 years ago. In 2005, it
serves as a stunning social document of Latino life in East Harlem and the
Bronx during the �70s and �80’s and takes us even further back with the use of brilliant archival footage. The film celebrates the life of one of
Latin music’s greatest legends and features interviews and performances with other icons including Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez and more! The short film The Old Man and Hemingway by Hugo Perez, which features an original score by Onel Mulet, will follow.
Following the screening, author and music critic, Ed Morales will lead a
panel discussion on the new wave of Cuban music. Confirmed panelists
include Onel Mulet, Composer/Musician; Ben Lapidus, PhD, Composer/Musician; and Jorge Navarro, founder of The Cuban Cowboys.
