Los Hermanos/The Brothers at Silverado Resort and Spa
Invitation OnlySpring Season
Los Hermanos/The Brothers at Silverado Resort and Spa

Festival Napa Valley hosts a private work-in-progress preview of Los Hermanos/The Brothers, a powerful upcoming public television documentary about brothers Ilmar Gavilán and Aldo López-Gavilán. The Brothers tracks Ilmar and Aldo’s parallel lives, heartfelt reunion, and momentous performances together on stages in Cuba and across the U.S. This documentary film - part road movie, part family drama, part musical, offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music, and an intensely moving, personal perspective on an unending geopolitical conflict whose next stage remains unknown. 

This invitation-only screening is followed by a performance featuring the film’s two stars: Aldo and Ilmar, a Q&A with directors Marcia Jarmel and Ken Schneider of PatchWorks Films, and an elegant reception at Silverado Resort and Spa.

Aldo López-Gavilán and Ilmar Gavilán in Concert at Jarvis Conservatory

Cuban pianist Aldo López-Gavilán, who made his festival debut in 2016 and was awarded the festival’s Khaledi Prize in 2017, is joined by his brother, Ilmar Gavilán, on violin for an electrifying concert of Aldo’s original compositions. Drawing from a range of colors that includes Middle Eastern, Irish and Brazilian sonorities, Aldo's compositions weave a layered tapestry described as magical, optimistic and at its core, deeply soulful. This very special evening commemorates the release of two collaborations between Aldo and Ilmar: a new album of original compositions and an upcoming public television documentary about their musical journeys.
