Watch All of the ‘Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba’ PBS Special Featuring Dave Matthews

On November 1, New York’s Lincoln Center hosted Seasons of Cuba, a special night of music led by violinist Joshua Bell and featuring Dave Matthews, the Chamber Orchestra of Havana, Cuban singer-songwriter Carlos Varela and more. The event, which celebrated the newly renewed ties between the United States and Cuba, was broadcast on PBS this past Friday night as part of their Live From Lincoln Center series, and now the video is available for viewing online for a limited time.

In the special, which can be viewed below, Matthews’ portion begins around the 35:17 mark, when Bell talks about Matthews and Varela’s collaboration in Cuba from earlier this year, along with Varela and Matthews discussing their respect for one another. Matthews then takes the stage with Varela for the Cuban songwriter’s “Muros y Puertas” with the orchestra before debuting his own tune, “Here On Out.” The set then ends with Matthews, Bell and the orchestra collaborating on DMB’s “Ants Marching.”
