Composing Collectivity

Exploring Musical Performance in Havana

Composing Collectivity explores musical performance in Havana, using experimental techniques to create a convergence of art, documentary and ethnography. In Cuba music is a way of life, a collective practice and a defining symbol of culture and identity. It is also an wondrous example of world music and intercultural performance, incorporating multicultural influence and global integration as integral components of artistic exchange and creation.

Highlighting the hybrid nature of Cuban music and culture, Composing Collectivity aims to provoke consideration of the beautiful outcomes that rise from the increasing interconnectedness of our world.
