ANNUNCIATIONS: Offline in Cuba – by Juan Carlos Zaldivar & Amanda Palmer


this is an odd one; a documentary(ish) about the trip that i took last christmas (2016) to cuba with jason webley, jherek and mayumi. the trip was a shot in the dark…i barely knew anybody down there, and through various connections through TED (mostly through meeting andrés levin, an artist who helped me out on the ground with just about everything), i flew down and made a lot of shit up as i went along. we played a show with an all-female string ensemble named camerata romeu, we made a bizarre music video with a ton of cuban artists using my patreon funding, and we explored what was happening.

for the full backstory, cast, crew credits and more, go to:

...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog ( - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
