Brava Theater celebrates the musical friendship between Cuba and the Bay Area with an encore virtual presentation of the sold-out 2017 concert featuring Pablo Menéndez and his world fusion Cuban band Mezcla.
In the Bay Area direct from Cuba, the band was joined on stage by special Bay Area guests John Santos, Barbara Dane, John Calloway, Fito Reinoso, Tito Gonzalez, Greg Landau and Camilo Landau plus students from School of the Arts “Ruth Asawa” who all came together to call for an end to the US’s 60+ year blockade strangling Cuba.
The concert footage has been remastered for this video premiere, with additional footage from behind the scenes and of the band and audience in post-show celebration.
Mezcla mixes Afro-Cuban/Yoruba roots music, rumba, Cuban rock, Cuban Jazz and Cuban new song resisting the commerciality of being defined by one style or sound. With Mezcla, Menéndez transforms a long and meaningful artistic life into spiritual richness – building on the strength of traditions while continuing to re-invent the future.
