Born from pure passion, the festival "Dias Cubanos" is an annual international Cuban salsa event aiming to promote Cuban dances and Cuban culture in its completeness, flavour, colours, music and rhythms.
After the success of the 2013 edition that counted hundreds of participants from all over Europe, the Dias Cubanos 2014 is already taking its shape. Get ready for another memorable weekend with parties, shows, large variety of workshops, highly specialized and internationally renowned teachers, a rueda de casino competition and lots of live music during the workshops. In 2014 Dias Cubanos will be 5 years old and a big celebrations is ahead of us.
The beauty, complexity and completeness of Cuban music take its origin by the fusion of African rhythms, imported by the African slaves taken to Cuba by the former Spanish colonization, and Spanish rhythms. The very first result of this culture blend originated to what it is nowadays called afro Cuban rhythms having as base the Santeria religion, born in Nigeria, and the Catholicism. In brief, Santeria religion is characterized by a complex structure of Gods and believes. From thereof music evolved to Cuban rumba, son, danzon, cha cha cha, mambo until modern salsa as we know it.
At the Dias Cubanos 2014 we want to tell this wonderful story rich in traditions and uniqueness to our participants by taking them through a program rich in dance and music in the presence of pedagogues, top class dancers and musician furnished with true authentic Cuban vibes. The festival will be sparkling with live music during parties and workshops for a truly unique dance experience as real as one would experience it in Cuba. After all, Cuba is by definition synonym of culture, dance and music and we could not make a culture event like the Dias Cubanos without letting people feel and touch the most primordial instruments and rhythms, mother of the music evolution of modern music.
See you next April 25-27, 2013
