From the trail-blazing dancer-producers behind the award-winning documentary “Havana Habibi” comes the new documentary film “Ya Habibi, The Story of a Song” a moving and timely exploration of the hidden ties that bind two cultures across difference, and a celebration of the music that unites us.
What do the Cuban and Arab diasporas have in common? Eight musicians and one dancer come together in Miami to find the answer, creating a performance of a song that was adored by both cultures. Separated by 90 years and 11,000 miles, this song taps into the sentiments of loss and love felt across generations by all those who live outside of their home country.
Join us immediately following the premiere, for a live Panel Discussion and Q&A with “Ya Habibi” director Gina Margillo and co-producers Vivian Marthell and Tiffany Madera, as well as Michael Ibrahim, director of the world-renowned National Arab Orchestra.
Presented by Hanan Arts and Live Arts Miami in collaboration with O Cinema, FilmGate Miami and National Arab Orchestra.
