But you don’t need a passport to experience Cuban culture — especially locally. From the store-fronts of Little Havana to the streets of Hia-leah, Cuba casts its colorful, rhythmic, highly caffeinated shadow across all of Mi-ami-Dade. And now the Wolfsonian (1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) is partner-ing with Miami Beach Cinematheque (1130 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) to celebrate that cultural crossover. The Havana Nights Film Series , kicking off Sunday, aims to show off the best in film and art inspired by Cuba. The evening begins with a guided tour of the Wolf’s new exhibit, “Promising Paradise: Cuban Allure, American Seduction.” After a survey of photos, posters, and items of pro-paganda depicting Cuba as a tropical para-dise, creating a flood of American tourists to PARAISO CUBANO So, you’re still freaking out over Beyoncé’s surprise masterpiece “Lemonade,” but you don’t know what else to consume. You need more, but you couldn’t get into her Miami concert — or maybe you did and it only made the craving worse. Good thing the Ibeyi twins are coming to cast magic spells at the North Beach Bandshell (7275 Collins Ave., Miami Beach) this Sunday. Pronounced “ee-bay-ee,” these actual twinsies are conjuring musi-cal madness at the interstellar intersection of organic history and futuristic funk. The sisters draw from a myriad of influences, reaching into their colorful roots to merge English, French, and Yoruban (that means “of the people” in southwestern Nigeria) sounds, rhythms, instrumentations, and stylings. Throw in a modern tinge of elec-tronic drum machines and lush, romantic vocals, and you’ve got yourself a hit band. It’s a compelling and mysterious sound. The show begins at 7 p.m. Sunday with an opening set from local band Afrobeta. Tickets cost $25.26 to $30.53. Call 305-672-5202 or visit See page 36 for more about Ibeyi.
