December 26, 2017With the holidays upon us and the year coming to a close, we look back with a few interesting videos of 2017: Teresita Fernández reflecting on her exhibition at Olana, new choreography from Malpaso Dance Company with music by Arturo O’Farrill, and a Lucas Award nominee for Video of the Year.
September 17, 2015Blacksmith by day, musician and music lover in his off hours, Alfredo González Suazo—better known as Sirique—ran one of the most important spaces for Cuban music in 1960s Havana in his blacksmithing shop. One day, a young photographer, Ernesto Fernández, turned up and started shooting. José León Díaz spoke with Fernández about that day. Added bonus: a classic video documentary on "La Herrería de Sirique."
