Sobre Sirena y Punto
Andrés es mi mejor amigo. Estudiamos juntos en la misma escuela, en donde a veces, otros niños nos molestan. Pasamos las tardes paseando, dibujando, leyendo e inventado historias. Entre nosotros no hay secretos y por eso el día que me revela su más grande deseo, pongo manos a la obra para ayudarlo a cumplirlo, por imposible que este parezca. Una historia entrañable sobre la complicidad, la solidaridad y la diversidad de género.

– Live Healthy Little Havana
– Miami-Dade County District 5 Commissioner Eileen Higgins
– City of Miami District 3 Commissioner Joe Carollo
– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.

Nick, better known as “Damage” on the streets of Miami, is the young leader of an infamous graffiti crew that leaves its mark wherever it goes. As they grow larger in fame and number, problems start arising–Nick’s personal life goes on a downward spiral; the illegal nature of his passion is bound to get him in trouble with the authorities, and, on top of that, he has to learn to fend off the local rival crew.

A local production shot in Miami’s neighborhoods of Wynwood, Little Havana and Little Haiti, Vandal takes the very thrilling world of graffiti art and explores the struggle of street artists to keep their art alive as well as the social backlash that goes hand in hand with pursuing their biggest passion. Director Jose Daniel Freixas, a graffiti artist in his own right since the age of 10, puts his firsthand experience in the world of graffiti to good use by highlighting Miami’s gritty streets as well as its multi-cultural heritage to show a city full of color, life and passion.

On February 28th at Ball & Chain, HAVANA CLUB rum will host the first-ever, private showing of the “Amparo” performance in Miami.

HAVANA CLUB rum recently launched its “Forever Cuban” campaign to uphold the authenticity of the rum’s Cuban heritage and assert its rightful place as the original HAVANA CLUB rum. To further affirm HAVANA CLUB rum as “Forever Cuban,” the brand is tapping into its heritage and retelling the story behind the original creators of the renowned rum with an immersive theatrical experience, aptly titled “Amparo.”

“Amparo” will transform attendees into travelers, complete with Cuban visas and travel guides, and transport them to the truth of the HAVANA CLUB story, beginning in pre-revolution Cuba in 1957 and concluding in modern day Miami. It is a story of industry and innovation, tragedy and betrayal, redemption and reclamation that many Cuban exiles have faced.

Along the journey, travelers will experience pivotal moments in the Arechabala family story that have defined the exiled rum brand. These emotionally charged scenes will unveil, for the first time, not only the injustices that the Cuban regime performed against the Arechabala family, but also the family’s long legacy. A legacy that the government tried to erase, but which history has recorded.

Most importantly, travelers will follow Ramon Arechabala, who managed to take his family’s rum recipe with him, out of Cuba. Ramon shared that recipe, along with the Arechabala family’s legacy, with Bacardi to ensure a future for what his family had made and what had been stolen from them. With “Amparo,” Bacardi is committed to honoring that legacy.

Cost: $10 – $25

A Golden Age Throw-Back at the Koubek Mansion & Gardens

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Koubek Center kicks off it’s season with a throwback, hosting a 1940s-style ballroom social dance, Danzon Cubano! featuring Federico Britos yu su conjunto with the Emmy-award winning Miami Dade College Orchestra in a tribute to legends Barbarito Diez, Beny More, and Cachao on Sat., February 17 in the Koubek Center gardens.

Danzón is the official musical genre of Cuba and a slow, elegant partner dance with concise footwork and elegant pauses allowing couples to stand listening to virtuoso instrumental passages. Also revered in Mexico and Puerto Rico, the danzon’s characteristic look has become iconic: the closeness of partners, the swaying hips, and the minimal use of floor space, limited to a single floor tile (ladrillo). As exalted in The Gaurdian, “The elegant three-step can be traced back to Matanzas on Cuba’s northern shore, in 1870. The father of danzón, Miguel Failde, mixed European and African rhythms to which couples moved gracefully and precisely, gently flirting with each other, storytelling with their bodies. The women, holding a fan or flowers, are dipped and twirled, but with only fleeting touches and eye contact.”

Right in time for Valentine’s Day weekend, Koubek Center channels these sweeter times with a romantic evening of slow dancing, beautiful attire, old-school manners and glorious music paying homage to the genre’s legends. To help attendees warm up and loosen up, Koubek Center will offer a complimentary pre-concert dance lesson and will be blending specialty cocktails for purchase.

The LHSC series continues the following month with the sounds of Pacific Colombia in a Chirimia street-style party featuring Rancho Aparte on Saturday, Mar. 24; and in the spring with Betsayda Machado, “the Voice of Venezuela, ” offers up the spirit-shaking vocals and percussion of Afro-Venezuelan soul on Saturday, Apr. 21.

About Federico Britos
Federico Britos is regarded as a titan of the violin, equally adept within the world of jazz as he is in the classical realm. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Britos began playing violin at the tender age five, and by eleven, had one of his musical pieces premiered by the renowned Romanian violinist George Boulanger. His talents grew as such that he came to serve as principal chair, soloist, and ultimately, concertmaster with some of the finest symphony orchestras in Uruguay, Venezuela, Peru, Cuba and South Florida.

Britos has performed with some of Latin America’s greatest musicians- Astor Piazzolla, Bola de Nieve, Cachao, Joao Gilberto, Dorival Caimi, and Vinicio de Moraes, as well as jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Benny Goodman, Charlie Haden and Charlie Byrd. He’s composed and recorded countless works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, ballet and dance as well as music for films, TV and theater, and has won several Grammy awards for his work with Charlie Haden, Bebo Valdes and Israel “Cachao” Lopez.
The powerhouse violinist has played most major jazz Festivals, including Montreux Jazz Festival; San Francisco Jazz Festival; International Jazz Festival in Espoo, Finland; Bern and Basile Jazz Festival (Switzerland); and Django Reinhardt Festival at Birdland Jazz Club in New York, ans was a special guest in The Grappelli Legacy on December 1998 at Carnegie Hall on the first anniversary of Stephane Grappelli’s disappearance. He’s also performed at the Kennedy Center with Cachao, Nestor Torres, Jose Feliciano, Juan Luis Guerra, Gloria Estefan and Paquito D’Rivera, in a program produced by James Edward Olmos called “Americanos.”
About Alberto Bade and the Miami Dade College Symphony
Recognized for his dynamic style, drive and musical passion, Maestro Alberto Bade has established a reputation as an outstanding young conductor. His charismatic stage presence and powerful interpretations of a wide repertoire have garnered him national and international attention and his diverse approach has led him to work with artists from both the classical and jazz world, as Ed Calle, Trio de Negroni and Federico Britos.
Born in West New York, New Jersey, Bade developed his interest in music at a very young age. Although primarily attracted to the orchestral language, he was also influenced by jazz and other genres. He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Music and Jazz at the University of Miami and a Master of Music Degree from the same institution before moving to New York to begin graduate studies at the Juilliard School. He’s studied with some of the most acclaimed conducting educators, including Vincent La Selva, Kenneth Keisler and the legendary Jorma Panula.
Bade currently works as Professor and Orchestral Director at Miami Dade College (MDC), where he serves as director of the MDC Symphony Orchestra. A dedicated advocate of music education, he founded the MDC Honors String Festival and is a regular guest clinician and conductor for local youth orchestras. He also frequently serves as a guest conductor in orchestras in Madrid, Berlin, Munich and St. Petersburg, Russia.

Cost: Free

In a program designated Triptych Miami, Eleonora Fabião will present three interrelated components. The action I Will Have a Conversation About Any Subject/Converso Sobre Cualquier Asunto finds the artist at various public locations over the course of three days, barefoot, sitting and facing an empty chair, and displaying a sign bearing the invitation of the work’s title. The artist will also present a lecture performance about her practice; a workshop with young artists titled Performance Art, Artistic Strategies, and Political Imagination (New World School of the Arts); and Light Cloud, an action that will be performed along with the workshop participants in downtown Miami. The unpredictable encounters that result from these open-ended situations constitute the works. Born in Brazil in1968, Eleonora Fabião is an artist and theorist who has performed actions in the streets since 2008. In 2011, she received the Arts in the Streets Award from the Brazilian National Foundation of the Arts and in 2014 the Rumos Itaú Cultural Grant that resulted in the publication of the book AÇÕES/ ACTIONS. Fabião is a professor at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro in the Theater Directing Undergraduate Program and the Arts of the Scene Graduate Program, where she chairs the artistic experimentation wing. Fabião is interested in the poetics and ethics of the strange, of the encounter, of precariousness. She considers the street actions as forms of knowledge and thought, and understands concepts and theories as sources of energy to keep investigating and inventing city, art, university, and writing. Her performance work has taken place in several venues including as part of Performa15 in New York in 2015, and at the Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica and the Museu Bispo do Rosário, both in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The roots of the band can be traced back to the summer of 2007, when drummer Ed Rosado and bassist Michael Mut first began rehearsing and composing together. The co-founders soon added permanent members Chris Correoso on guitar and Rich Dixon on trumpet / flugelhorn, and surrounded themselves with some of South Florida’s best musical talent. A decade, two EPs, eight singles and countless shows and festival performances later, Electric Piquete is one of the area’s most prominent Latin funk bands. They are celebrating the milestone with a free performance at Ball & Chain Friday, August 11, 2017, beginning at 10 p.m. The venue is located at 1513 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33135.

Cost: $10 – $20

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Koubek Center, su casa de cultura, hosts the Little Havana Social Club social dance series season finale with Herencia de Timbiqui – direct from Colombia, at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 22.

Hailed as “one of the most exciting tropical music acts out of Colombia in recent years” by World Music Central, and “Pound for pound, the best band of the Colombian Pacific” by Carlos Vives, Herencia de Timbiqui is an Afro-descendent group from the Pacific coast of Colombia, that combines ancestral and modern instruments for an irresistible sound that is folkloric and contemporary.

“Our musical richness is the fruit of many afternoons spent on the banks of the Timbiquí, River, in the middle of the Colombian Pacific jungle, when the marimba made from the chonta tree and traditional drums overtake the silence. That is our heritage”!

Timbiquí is a small town on the Colombian Pacific Ocean coast, surrounded by jungle and rivers. In the early aughts, composer Begner Vásquez and four other friends were forced to abandon their hometown due to the violence generated by illegal groups that controlled the area’s gold mines as well as the serious danger posed by paramilitary groups to Afro Colombian communities. They moved to Cali, the largest city on the Colombian Pacific coast, founded the band, and began to develop their unique take on their folkloric-rooted grooves, which are played with marimba made from the chonta tree, deer-hide drums called cununus and seed-filled percussion instruments called guasá–fused with contemporary instruments such as the electrical guitar, drums, trumpet and sax. An eleven member band, Herencia also added to the mix the salsa of Colombian dance halls as well as an exploration of funk, jazz and reggae. It is said that each concert is an explosion of energy, flavor and rhyhms that force audience members up from the seats.

Luckily, the Little Havana Social Club series–dedicated to celebrating Latin American heritage through music and dance–provides a dance floor for such an occasion. Intent on promoting community and engagement, the evening featuries a pre-concert dance lesson, DJ set, and local vendors selling specialty food and cocktails. Situated in the lush gardens of the historic Koubek Center mansion, the audience has plenty of opportunity to mix and mingle, learn and engage.

About Herencia de Timbiqui
The folkloric ensemble honors traditional regional music styles and maintain a strong commitment to social issues, offering workshops and outreach to benefit underserved populations in Colombia. Their compositions harken back to ancestral roots – instruments, vocals, call and response, and rhythm – all the while being completely contemporary.

In 2006, Herencia de Timbiquí won first place in the Free Form Category in the renowned “Petronio Álvarez Pacific Music Festival”, the largest gathering of the music of the Afro-Colombian Pacific Coast. In 2010, their first international performance brought them to the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and that same year, they were featured in the Colombia episode of PBS’s “Music Voyager”. In 2011, they performed two official showcases at SXSW to rave reviews. They’ve been awarded the ‘Gaviota de Plata’ award for Best Folkloric Song at the International Festival Viña del Mar in Chile, and the Colombian Shock Prize for Best Recording of the Year for their single “Amanece”. The band has performed in the closing ceremony of the World Games in Cali along with Colombian superstar Carlos Vives, and were selected to participate in the projects created by Vives as USAID’s first “Inclusion Ambassador.”

Their most recent album, “This is Gozar!”, bears the mark of renowned British producer William Holland (aka “Quantic”) and features two tunes deeply steeped in the band’s African roots: “Negrito”, which is a currulao (ancestral song and dance) and “A tu manera”, a fusion of reggae with aguabajo (traditional chants based on two vocalists). The album also features “Afrika”, a song composed during Herencia’s tour throughout Zambia y Zimbabwe, featuring Ghanaian guitarist, bandleader and living legend Ebo Taylor.

Herencia de Timbiquí has toured extensively thoughout Central and South America, Eurpoe, Africa and the US, and have also completed a series of 30 concerts in Dubai. This show marks their South Florida debut.

Founded by Pierre Ramos in 2004, Plena Es plays the high-energy Caribbean dance music that is a touchstone for Puerto Rican identity. Bomba is the music created by West African slaves on Puerto Rico’s sugar plantations, and Plena mixed bomba with indigenous Taíno music and jibaro music of the island’s mountain farmers. Plena focuses on the story sung by a lead singer and chorus, backed by the rhythm of hand drums. Plena Es offers up both styles with its own Miami twist.

Little Havana Social Club Returns with Miami Debut of Septeto Santiaguero

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Koubek Center, su casa de cultura, re-ignites it’s starlit social dance series, the Little Havana Social Club, with the Miami debut of Septeto Santiaguero–direct from Cuba–at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 14.

“What better way to bring back the series than with this historic band, indulging us with their rich musical tradition that has influenced so many in this community,” says Jessica Gloria, Manager of the Koubek Center. “Our goal is to make this series at the Koubek Center into a place of gathering for Latin music and dance enthusiasts. There is already a tremendous buzz in the neighborhood.”

The Latin Grammy- and Cubadisco- winning group Septeto Santiaguero developed their signature sound at the famous Casa de la Trova nightclub in Santiago de Cuba–the cradle of son and bolero. Their balance of tradition with experimentation has sparked collaborations with salsa stars like José Alberto “El Canario” and Rubén Blades. This show marks their Miami debut and their premiere U.S. tour.

The Little Havana Social Club is a series dedicated to celebrating Latin American heritage through music and dance. The concerts and dance parties promote community and engagement–from the dance floor to the domino tables, each evening featuring vibrant live bands, pre-concert dance lessons, and community vendors. Situated in the lush gardens of the historic Koubek Center mansion, the performances are preceded by a complimentary dance lesson, and followed by an afterparty with a DJ. Specialty food and cocktails are available for purchase.

Coming events in the series include an Argentine Valentine’s Milonga with Argot Tango Quintet on February 18; Puerto Rican bomba and plena by Plena Es on March 25; and Afro-Colombian Rhythms from Herencia de Timbiqui on April 22.

About Septeto Santiaguero
Septeto Santiaguero was founded in 1995, as a number of young musicians from other septets, such as Sones de Oriente or Septeto Luz, joined the famous Melodías de Ayer and Fernando Dewar, a tres player, took over the leadership. Seeking to return to their roots, they decided to give up the mambos and stick to the discipline of the traditional septet – guitar, tres, bongo, clave, maracas, acoustic bass and trumpet–with the addition of the drum, which they retained in honor of Arsenio Rodríguez. In the Santiago de Cuba style, the two singers maintain the first and second harmony with equal emphasis.

Despite the fact that the group is eight in number, they retained the name Septeto Santiaguero because of the way they perform the son, the bolero, the guaracha, the guajira, and the guaguancó, which are completely rooted in the septeto sound. Together they have a created a group which preserves and pays homage to one of Cuba’s most important musical forms, with a vitality demonstrating that the septeto tradition is still fresh and alive in Santiago de Cuba today.

Miami Dade College’s Koubek Center, su casa de cultura, launches its new bilingual family series, Playtime: Días de las Familias, from Noon – 4 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 22, with a Día de Los Muertos celebration. This event is free and open to the public.

The series fills an important niche in Miami, as it provides parents an engaging (and free) way for their children to learn and practice Spanish. The fun and interactive family days will highlight the diverse arts, crafts, literary histories, and music and dance of the city’s many Hispanic cultures. Children will be invited to sing, dance, create and speak together en Español.

Playtime begins with a festive bang–a Dia de los Muertos celebration. With help from The Puppet Network, Ameyal Cultural Center, and the Mexican Cultural Institute in Miami, activities will include a puppet parade; thematic face painting and craft making (skull masks and papel picado: paper decorated with cut-outs); live Mexican folkloric music and dance performances and storytelling; an ofrenda (Day of the Dead altar) exhibit; a musical instrument petting zoo and more! Mexican food will be available for purchase.

The Playtime series continues on November 12 with Aventuras de Don Quixote (Adventures of Don Quixote).

The 2016-17 Season marks a new chapter in Koubek Center’s history–one in which the venue realizes its own programming. In addition to Playtime: Dias Familiares, Koubek Center’s signature series include Little Havana Social Club, concert/dance parties in the gardens and En Residencia, an artist-in-residency initiative aligning art with activism, artist with community.

The award-winning feature-length documentary film chronicles the life of MDC graduate Juan Gomez. Academically gifted, Juan firmly believes in the philosophy and promise of the American Dream. Facing separation from his parents, and caught in the midst of a dysfunctional immigration system and a deadlocked Congress, this bright, hardworking student struggles to gain legal status in the United States, the country he entered at age two with his parents who fled Colombia seeking asylum.
Much is at stake for DREAMers like Juan, remarkable young immigrants currently protected from deportation by President Obama under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The 2016 presidential race has further heightened their fear of deportation, amid calls for mass round-ups and the deportation of all persons lacking legal status. AI Justice has been fighting for immigration reform since opening our doors in January 1996 and staff continue to work tirelessly to protect immigrant’s basic rights.
Panelists will include the film’s director, Aldo Bello, former Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, and prominent DREAMer and immigrant rights leader, Gaby Pacheco. AI Justice’s Executive Director, Cheryl Little, will moderate.
