Wainwright Libre! Rufus in Havana
To my closest fans,
From September 21 through September 25, I’ll be hosting Wainwright Libre, Rufus in Havana. I'll be staying at the Melia Miramar hotel and we will get a fantastic opportunity to really dig into the culture of Cuba together – in addition I’ll be performing a couple of exciting shows for you!
I’ve performed in Cuba before, but we’re going to do something a little different this time. The first performance, just for you, will be a private, stripped-down, solo show. We’ll also be playing a public show, and I have some surprises in store for this one... but I will tell you that I’ll be playing alongside some of Cuba’s best musicians, some of the greatest musicians in the world.
I hope you walk away from the trip with new friends, memories, and a sense of the interesting realism of the place and the fantastical dream world that it can also engender. Cuba has an amazing mix of both elements. You see things that are very true while also very mysterious and ephemeral. It pivots between those two elements in a wonderful way. It’s really beautiful. The people are gorgeous, and the weather ain’t too bad!
I hope you love it as much as I do.
