The Havana Queens are an award-winning, independent/private dance company who perform a variety of traditional and modern styles. Here is a short sample from a recent rehearsal I was fortunate to attend (November 2017)
Finally, a few short "bonus videos" of some authentic Cuban phenomena, from chamber music to flamenco, Spanish classic to modern dance. With a capella Holiday music in between, like this warm sendoff on our last night in Havana before heading North for the holidays - and snow.
Here is a short snippet of as "as authentic as you can get": a 'barbershop sextet' complete with barber shop, playing classic Cuban music and rhythm, right in the heart of Havana's old town square. Puro.
And lastly, a short taste of one of Cuba's great chamber/cha-cha orchestras, Orquesta de Cámara de Cienfuegos. This gifted ensemble covers classical (European & Cuban), contemporary, and puro-Cuban music, from symphonies to Cha Cha and Bodeguero.
