A Tuba to Cuba: The Preservation Hall Jazz Band with Yusa and Special Guests at the Rio Theatre

Wednesday, November 20 @ 7:30 PM

A Tuba to Cuba is as much a soundtrack to our documentary as it is a collection of songs that we wrote and recording during the filming and after its completion.  The writing and recording of our previous release, ‘So It Is’ began before our first trip to Cuba in 2015.  We had no idea that it would become the album it would until we returned home from that first trip.  The ‘A Tuba To Cuba’ soundtrack is comprised of a combination of songs that are both in the movie and new songs that aren’t in the film or couldn’t have been in the film because not until we were able to watch it ourselves, we were again inspired to put that spirit into new music.  Our five years exploring the Cuba/NOLA history has been inspiring to say the least.” – Preservation Hall Jazz Band 

Recently, Preservation Hall Jazz Band released “Kreyol,” a spirited tune from A Tuba To Cuba, the forthcoming soundtrack to the critically acclaimed documentary directed by T.G. Herrington and Danny Clinch. A Tuba To Cuba follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfill his late father’s dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. A Tuba To Cuba celebrates the triumph of the human spirit expressed through the universal language of music and challenges us to resolve to build bridges, not walls.
