Soul of Cuba with Enrique Chia Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Sun, Sep 21, 2014 -- 8:00 PM

Internationally renowned pianist Enrique Chia takes viewers on another musical journey through his beloved homeland in the new special, THE SOUL OF CUBA. This time, Maestro Chia celebrates the elegance and style of Cuba's golden era. The intimate concert, performed in a Colonial-inspired tropical setting, pays tribute to the Great Cuban Songbook from the first half of the 20th century and provides an anthology of Cuban music and culture. Classic selections like the sensual "Habanera T?," and the heart-wrenching melodies of "Aquellos Ojos Verdes," "Nosotros" and "Corazon," capture the spirt of the era and transport viewers back to the early years of the Republic. Between songs, Chia reminisces about the music of top composers, revisits the origins of the bolero and looks back fondly on the Cuba of his youth. A compilation of rare photos and archival footage also showcases the country's natural beauty, while costumed dancers perform to the musical score.

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
