Your Production Jedi down in Cuba. Just shining light on all the people, places, and things helping shape the narrative today

As you know this blog is all about “the new Cuba” – not the “Disney-fied” version that keeps eluding its growth. I just got tipped off by a friend in Havana about this band called Nacional Electronica.

The root of their sound is pure Cuban. Tight percussion, and layered drumming over a bed of electronic reverberations. It’s a mix of the old and the new… illustrative of the experimental scene down there now.

The short film is directed by Zacharie Fay. It follows the narrative of a Cuban Barbershop locked behind fences. The barber performs ace skills on his subject. Together, the visuals, the spirit and the sound give birth to a properly shaven young man ready to face the world.
