Joining the musicians in honoring the humanitarian role Cuba played during the pandemic, during which it sent medical teams and supplies to nearly 30 nations, will be an equally impressive group of artists and performers, all of whom are known for their decades-long activism in defense of human dignity and rights. And complementing the musicians and artists will be a number of well-known political activists and leaders. Additional performers and speakers will continue to be added to the event.

Marguerite Horberg, whose Chicago cultural-mecca HotHouse, developed HotHouseGlobal as an online streaming initiative to serve the NGO, small business, and cultural industries adversely affected during this health and economic crisis, and a sponsor of the two-night event speaks of the uniqueness and importance of the moment. “Not only is this an amazing gathering of talent – it is an important affirmation of hope. If we’ve learned nothing else these last months, we’ve learned how connected we all are. In the same spirit that Cuba, one of the world’s smallest nations, sent medical teams to more than 26 nations during the pandemic, this concert too is meant to underscore that interconnectedness. It is as it states, “A time to heal.”

“A Concert for Cuba” is sponsored by: the Instituto Cubano de la Música/The Cuban Institute of Music; HotHouse (Chicago, IL); Raul Cuza (Montreal, Canada); and Bill Martinez (San Francisco, CA). The concert will contain both live and pre-recorded sections and be broadcast at 7pm CST/8pm EST/6pm PST on both July 18th and 19th from Havana’s Instituto Cubano.

The concert is free and will be available through a variety of channels, both within and outside of Cuba. To Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa the broadcast will be available through the the Twitch.tv/HotHouseGlobal channel as well as through HothouseGlobal’s Facebook Site. While there is no charge, advance registration is recommended. Register here or at the “Concert for Cuba” Eventbrite site at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/concert-for-cuba-tickets-111083545876?aff=erelexpmlt to ensure notice of any schedule or broadcast changes.

Despite being the one of the hemisphere’s smallest nations, with its resources constrained by continued U.S. policies, Cuba is sharing its medical advances and teams of health care experts and first responders to assist more than two dozen nations across the globe. In recognition of their profound contributions, many of the island nation’s legendary musicians will be joined by a score of international stars for the two-night event.
