Havana Featured In PBS Travelogue

PBS will feature Havana in a July 18 program, “Weekend in Havana with Geoffrey Baer.”
 
Baer will join three young local Cubans – architect and restorationist Daniel de la Regata; Irene Rodriguez, one of Cuba's top flamenco dancers; and Grammy-nominated jazz pianist Roberto Fonseca – to experience the vibrant island nation’s capital.
 
Baer meets up with the locals at a café in Cathedral Plaza in Old Havana, and takes “a whirlwind tour of Cuba's fascinating and colorful history,” PBS said in a press release. The program features a hands-on introduction to Afro-Cuban music and dance, a primer on Havana's varied architecture and efforts being made to restore many of the city's ruins, and an inside look at how everyday Cubans live.
 
The program is accompanied by an “immersive website,” including text, sound, images and virtual reality video. Part of the documentary series "PBS Summer of Adventure,” it premieres Tuesday, July 18, 2017, 8:00-9:00 p.m.
