Questlove Visits Cuba in New Mini-Documentary, ‘Quest For Cuba’


Questlove of The Roots and The Tonight Show fame spent two days and two nights in Havana, Cuba, which made for the subject of the mini-documentary Quest For Cuba: Questlove Brings the Funk to Havana, directed by Jauretsi and Daniel Petruzzi. In the 13-minute video, Questlove plays a DJ set, promising that “The Roots will come to Cuba,” and professing his love for the crowd that attended his set, claiming that “[He’s] been waiting for an audience like this for a decade.” The day after his first set, Questlove explores downtown Havana, beat-boxes while local rapper Brejabe Man spits a verse, and visits EGREM studios, an integral piece of Cuban music. Check out the mini-documentary below, and some of the pictures Questlove took during his visit to Cuba a few weeks ago at
