Red Hot + Cuba

| No Comments
My partner and I had the pleasure of attending Red Hot + Cuba at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on World AIDS Day, December 1. It was the second of two performances (the first was the previous evening) by contemporary Cuban musicians at BAM.

Since 1989 the Red Hot Organization has worked with leading musicians from around the world to raise funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS. Their first compilation Red Hot + Blue remains one of my favorite CDs of all time.

The New York Times wrote a wonderful review of the evening confirming for me what I already felt, which is that my partner and I witnessed something truly special.
