Cuba in its artistic splendor
The history of Cuba lies in the smoke of its tobacco, the sweetness of its sugar, and the rhythms of its music. Guitars and white sugar, drums and black tobacco - ever since the 16th century, these elements have combined to enhance Cuba’s creative fervor. Today, «café au lait», Bongo, Contradanse, Tango, Habanera, Rumba and Creole all come together to create an «exciting» sound... According to the protagonists of this popular art, Salsa does not exist : these are the sounds of traditional Cuban Music. Here, we discover the famous Cuban Son through a blend of its music, dance, and songs.
