Major Lazer to release documentary detailing their experience in Cuba
Dance music heavyweights Major Lazer have always been renowned for pushing boundaries in the scene, continuously moving forward with some of the freshest concepts in the industry. In March last year, they pushed boundaries once again by performing in Havana, Cuba, a near impossible task due to the U.S. embargo which had been in place since the late 1950s. However, following the restoration of diplomatic ties during Obama’s presidency, the performance became a possibility. Setting up the one-off show certainly wasn’t an easy task, with the idea having been in the pipeline for over a year according to the trio, with endless visits, phone calls and applications needed to enable it to take place.
At the ground-breaking performance in Havana, over 400,000 people were in attendance, which Major Lazer admit was a much higher number than originally anticipated, a resounding success for the trio. In a surprise announcement, Major Lazer took to Facebook to reveal that their experience in Cuba had been documented, and had been adapted into a movie titled ‘GIVE ME FUTURE‘. Set to be premiered at Sundance Film Festival, the documentary was directed by Austin Peters, a friend of the trio.
