Ilmar and Aldo are virtuoso Cuban-born brothers living on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half century wide. Tracking their parallel lives, poignant reunion, and momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothers offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.
I was 14 and my brother was only 8 when I left Cuba.
We didn't have the chance to play music together.
Collaborating with my brother is a dream come true.
By not having so much exchange,
we're missing out on so many great musicians.
Through music, you can achieve
more powerful things than with politics.
