Californian piano tuner Ben Treuhaft set out for Cuba with 25 pianos and a brigade of piano tuners, defying the US blockade of the island, to help address the shortage of pianos in a country which is famed for its music. Tuning with the Enemy is the story of that trip. It is a captivating, humorous and moving film with great views from Cuba and Cuban musicians. The documentary is made by Tricia O'Leary and Helen Gallacher and features Buena Vista Social Club (Ruben Gonzales, Ibrahim Ferrer, Eliades Ochoa) performing throughout the film.
We will be screening Tuning with the Enemy as part of our own campaign to send a piano to the Amadeo Roldan music school in Havana (see: www.gofundme.com/pianotocuba). The money raised from our first classical music benefit concert through US ticket sales website Eventbrite has been confiscated under the US blockade rules, and we have a long way left before we reach our £10,000 target for a concert piano. This event has been organised in collaboration with Colectivo Ecuatoriano Rikchary and Rock around the Blockade. Please come to watch this film and help our project.
Bring your friends and family! Free entry; £5 suggested donation.
This is the second benefit concert to raise money towards a project to buy a concert piano in London and send it to the Conservatorio Amadeo Roldán music school in Havana. For more information, or to make a donation see: www.gofundme.com/pianotocuba
