This year CubaCaribe celebrates the fifth anniversary of the CubaCaribe Festival of Dance and Music with three consecutive weekends of thought-provoking workshops, lectures, and performances. "5, 50, 500 YEARS OF TRADITION" commemorates the multiplicity and interconnectivity of time-honored and experimental performance arts in the Bay Area, Cuba and the Americas. Expanding on previous festivals, the fifth annual CubaCaribe Festival of Dance and Music spotlight the hybrid aesthetic practices that proliferate along cultural pathways crisscrossing the Americas - including Native American, Mexican, Peruvian, Brazilian, Haitian, Cuban and African-American dace, music and song.

"5, 50, 500 YEARS OF TRADITION" marks 5 years of CubaCaribe festivals and the organization's continuing support of the arts; celebrates the vital performance arts that emerged as landmarks in the Cuban social landscape during the 50 years since the 1959 revolution; and commemorates the acts of creative tenacity, devotion, adaption and transgression that fuelled cultural continuity and revitalisation in the 500 years since colonisation in the Americas.

Held from Friday 17 April to Sunday 3 May at Dance Mission Theater, San Francisco, CA.
