HABANA/HARLEM®, an independent cultural production company, nurtures the arts and humanities by advancing contemporary artistic innovation, and supports evolving trends in music through strategic exposition, artist development, performance, distribution, and promotion. The initiative was conceived by Neyda Martinez, executive producer with Onel Mulet producer and creative director. HABANA/HARLEM celebrates the legacy of this creative nexus, as well as expressions by artists whose work foster dialogue, cultural appreciation, and greater understanding among diverse communities.

Fueled by the friendship and rich exchange of concepts and ideas between artists such as Chano Pozo and Dizzy Gillespie, among many others, HABANA/HARLEM commemorates the unconditional acceptance of collaborative fluid creativity, which changed the course of music history.
