Two Cuban-born brothers, both virtuoso musicians Aldo and Ilmar Lpez-Gaviln live on opposite sides of the geopolitical chasm that separates the U.S. and Cuba. But although they lead very different lives, the brothers have an instinctual connection. Following their parallel lives in New York and Havana, Los Hermanos / The Brothers offers an amazingly heartfelt and eye-opening view of our estranged nations through the lens of music and family.
"Expertly and beautifully paced, like a great piece of music." -Violinist Joshua Bell
