Ahmed and Regla’s Havana Session

MAY 27, 2017

Ahmed and Regla remind me of Chico and Rita, a movie about two cuban musician who were bonded together by love and music. Backdropped by the nostalgic city of Havana, Chico and Rita’s story revolves around music, romantic desires and journey. They fell in love, got separated by fame and political unrest and Six decades later, he found Rita in Vegas and learned that she has been waiting for him for 47 years.

Ahmed and Regla’s story is comparable, both musicians, bonded together by love for music and… love itself. They currently live in a long distance relationship, with Regla in Mexico pursuing a music career while Ahmed stays in Havana following the same career path as her. Ahmed is working on moving to Mexico to be with his love and hopefully… it’s soon.

Their story is a good reminder of how love defies limits, it defies borders and that love is not measured by distance but by faith.

Their love is like a song that you can hear across oceans, its their connection, its what bonded them before and it will be their bond forever.
