You‘re sitting on the floor of a cramped loft in Havana, Cuba. The sun streams through a window overlooking a market, and the sounds of chickens clucking and people bartering filters in softly from outside. Inside, it’s a makeshift recording studio complete with turntables, mixers and crates of vintage dance vinyls from around the world. Your journey into Cuba’s electronic music underground – a creative retaliation against this country’s isolationism – begins here.
In this VR Playhouse original, “Viva La Evolutiòn” takes viewers to Havana, Cuba, inviting them inside the city’s underground dance scene as it faces a new era of globalization. Directed by Fifer Garbesi.
