Maroon 5 to shoot next music video in Cuba

Posted: 04-Aug-16 09:27

Inebriated with the infectious Cuba fever that has taken hold of many a celebrity lately, Maroon 5 are poised to become the next world-famous music group to land in the island, this time allegedly to shoot a music video for the promotion of their next song. While many details are still to be revealed, rumour has it Maroon 5 has had the island on its sights for a while, with even future plans for a performance or Cuba concert on the cards.

Maroon 5 to shoot next music video in Cuba

Still reeling with the excitement of two legendary music bands recently arriving to the island to stage two spectacular concerts, first Major Lazer on the Malecon and then The Rolling Stones in Havana’s largest baseball stadium, Cuba can once again start whetting their appetite for more international music to serenade a huge fan base of die-hard music lovers in the island. If anyone loves an excuse for a party, a large gathering or anything music-related, that’s Cubans, and they could soon be treated to yet another smashing show with crowds inundating public open spaces and music venues packed to the brim.

Not long ago, a Cuban journalist who features frequently in Cuban TV made the following announcement in his Facebook account:

“There is a possibility that Maroon 5 could offer a concert in Cuba…I’m speechless”

Those were the words of Oliver Zamora last March and their echoes slowly waned until now, that fresher news about Maroon 5 landing in Cuba are starting to resound once again.

But even before that happens, indeed if it happens at all, as it hasn’t been officially confirmed as of yet, Maroon 5 could be getting there to film a music video first, at least according to reports by Cibercuba. According to the Cuban news site, the U.S. band is gearing up for the shooting of a videoclip in Havana with announced dates for the filming on 12th and 13th August.

The source also reveals that all members of Maroon 5 are currently in the process of obtaining their visas for travel to Cuba with all arrangements still in the works but so far they have pre-selected two locations for the video shoot; with one of them being the house of Oscar-nominated Cuban actor, Jorge Perrugoria in Jaimanitas and the other not disclosed as of yet.

All the details known and revealed so far have been unveiled by sources close to the production team and their counterparts in Havana. With 12th and 13th August only being a little more than a week away and with news in Cuba travelling speed-lightning fast through word of mouth, we bet “habaneros” are already gearing up to the event and getting their cameras and smartphones ready to snap away at Maroon 5 as they make their way through the Cuban capital, which seems to grow in popularity by the second.

We had previously reported on Maroon 5 planning to stage a concert in Cuba and with the way things are going and progressing, it probably won’t be long until they gather major crowds in Havana and make them sway to the strumming of their electric guitars and pop-rock hits.
