Great Performances: Havana Time Machine Nowhere else on the planet does the past inform the present, and the future embrace our past with the emotional power of today's Cuba. Havana Time Machine takes an intoxicating musical journey where entire eras collide in a joyous celebration.
Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Raul Malo explores Havana's streets and cultural scene in evocative segments, each a segue to musical performances with such illustrious Cuban artists as Eliades Ochoa (Buena Vista Social Club), indie-pop Sweet Lizzy Project, Ivette Cepeda, piano jazz master Roberto Fonseca, the Instituto Superior de Arte string quartet, and American Latino-Country-Rock artists, The Mavericks.
If Revolution has been the heart of Cuba for fifty years, surely music has been her soul, and Havana Time Machine presents this once-in-a-lifetime, US/Cuba collaborative showcase on the thriving tropical kaleidoscope that is Havana's music and cultural spirit.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
