Ben Jaffe, the creative director of New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band 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.
It features jazz legends Charlie Gabriel and Walter Harris, as well as Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Regine Chassagne - and of course plenty of music from the Preservation Jazz Hall Band and their Cuban counterparts. The film was directed by T.G. Herrington and Danny Glitch and is coming to select theaters beginning February 15th before it is available everywhere on VOD on March 15th.
