HEARING CUBA

A special preview screening of "Los Zafiros--Music from the Edge of Time" will introduce you to a legendary Cuban vocal group of the 1960s. Inspired by American vocalists like The Platters and The Modernaires, Los Zafiros crafted their own popular sound with Afro-Cuban rhythms. Though they enjoyed international acclaim, touring widely throughout Europe, the group remained in relative obscurity in the U.S. as a result of the political relationship of the two countries. One of the filmmakers will be available to answer questions following the 77-minute film.
