Tulane Univesrity is welcoming award-winning young Cuban animators to show their work! Fresh from the Muesta Joven film festival in Havana, members of two of the most important independent animation groups in Cuba will be on campus: Ermitis Blanco and Daniel Mancebo from ÑOOo Productions, and “El Muke” (Harold Díaz-Guzman Casañas) from Oniroma Productions. Even though many of these young animators don’t have access to the latest technology, Cuban animation is world renowned for provocative and intricate work. Don’t miss this opportunity to see new works from Cuba and chat with the filmmakers.

Bringing the animators on tour will be Alex Halkin of Americas Media Initiative. AMI is a non-profit focused on the distribution of independent and community media from Cuba and developing cultural exchange projects between Cuban and U.S. citizens.

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane presents Michael Skinkus with Moyuba at the first annual Delgado Music Festival on Saturday, April 1 at 5:30 pm. The performance is part of a two day inaugural festival that is the culminating event of a week of educational music activities and will include master classes and a songwriting contest. Moyuba is a group that performs “Modern Jazz compositions based upon the Yoruba sacred songs and Bata drum rhythms that form the ceremonial music of Santería or Regla de Ocha in Cuba. The band uses the sacred songs and rhythms as a basis for it’s original compositions that are in fact suites of songs dedicated to orishas such as Eleguá, Ogún, and Ochósi.” (from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival website where they will perform on Friday, April 28). The performance is supported with funds from the Stone Center for Latin American Studies’ US Department of Education’s Title VI National Resource Center grant.
