Join Richard Diaz and his guest, Coach Jenny Hadfield as they discuss an exotic running vacation: The Havana Cuba Half Marathon. Due to the US embargo, Cuba has been restricted for US travelers. This is a unique chance to visit and run on the forbidden Island of Cuba.
Few Americans have had the pleasure of visiting Cuba since we blocked trade with Cuba as far back as October of 1960 back. Through the efforts of InsightCuba, a non-profit travel organization specializing in legal people-to-people travel to Cuba for Americans, runners from the US can legally visit Cuba to participate in this event.
This week, we're live from the new location of Group Therapy Open Mic, Havana Cigars in Tustin, CA.
Havana Cigars sells cigars and accessories and offers a smoking lounge for customers to sit and enjoy a variety of events. They carry a large selection of fine cigars with a huge walk-in humidor. Their cigars have been carefully selected to impress everyone from the most experienced cigar aficionado to first-timers looking for a new experience.
After the show will be Group Therapy Open Mic, where you can "work out your issues" on our stage. So come out and smoke and joke with some of Orange County's finest up and coming comedians.
We're also looking for singers, musicians and poets. Sign ups start at 7:30; the booked show starts at 8 and the open mic is right after. Acts will get to perform for 5 to 10 minutes on a first come, first served basis. If you're on a roll you can keep going, but if you're bombing, we'll gently help you off.
In 2003, Tiffany Madera aka “Hanan,” enraged her Cuban family in Miami by getting on a plane to Havana to participate in an artistic exchange that led to the formation of Cuba’s first Arabic dance troupe; Grupo Aisha Al-Hanan. The troupe founded by hanan was composed of eight women at the University of Havana’s History Department. A live band of musicians shortly followed from Havana’s colorful and diverse music scene. Guided by hanan, Grupo Aisha Al Hanan; quickly gained notoriety around Cuba despite its departure from State- Sanctioned Culture and Art models. A grassroots cultural movement ensued which had a profound impact on many lives across the globe.
For Hanan’s family, her returning to Cuba was like an act of support for the Communist Revolution that drove them from their island to Miami. Havana Habibi begins three years later following Hanan’s visit to Havana for the International Dance Festival and workshops with Grupo Aisha Al-Hanan. We meet the ensemble and see the sacrifices they make to create their art.
Havana Habibi looks at the cross cultural exchange and intermigration between Africa, Cuba, Spain and the USA; what it means to be a Cuban Bellydancer in Revolutionary Cuba as well as the Cuban Diaspora and travels throughout time, geography and space to tell the human story behind Revolution and geo-political Identity through the sensual metaphor of Bellydance.

BIO: LUIS GONZALEZ
Luis González nació en La Habana, Cuba, donde pasó los primeros siete años de su vida. Su madre, viuda y con tres hijos, huyó del estado comunista con sus niños en remolque. La familia se mudo a Culver City, California, un municipio de Los Ángeles. Aunque lejos de su patria, Luis se dio cuenta que llevaba a Cuba en el alma, en su sangre cuando en el sexto grado, hizo un reporte sobre su país y ahí comenzó una relación amorosa con su patria que continúa hasta el dia de hoy. Desde la edad escolar primaria, Luis supo que llevaba la escritura en su sangre. "Siempre me ha gustado escribir, desde niño y supongo que siempre he sido autor independient. Cuando estaba en el tercer grado, después de sólo haber estado en este país un par de años, escribí dos cuentos. Uno se llama Las Zapatillas Mágicas, el otro, Los Delfines. Tomé hojas de papel que doblé y grapé, y no sólo escribí los cuentos, sino los ilustré e hice la portada y todo por ellos. Todavía tengo estos dos primeros libros míos, y ahora que miro hacia atrás me digo, “De verdad que siempre fui escritor, por lo menos en mi alma." Hasta hoy esos dos libritos siguen siendo dos de mis posesiones más preciadas. Luis estudio y se graduó de UCLA con licenciatura en literatura inglés y una concentración en composición y literatura española. A Luis le inspira profundamente y es conmovido por la política, la religión y las artes, cuales forman hilos de la tela en su escribir.
