Barrio of Cuba
Let’s enjoy this symbolic culture together and explore culture in its many art forms.
We close the season of the summer BARRIOS of 2022 with the ninth installment of the year. Blind Insect Gallery presented the BARRIO of Cuba. The culture of Cuba is a complex mixture, a rich amalgam of African, Spanish, and Caribbean pastimes; the food, the religions, and of course the music and dances all combine elements of the Old World and the New.
We will have rhythms of Latin jazz with 1,000 Fuegos. This band has become a cultural bridge between ancient sounds of afro-Cuban, and timeless rhythms of Latin music & EDM.
Let's dance with Rueda de Casino, a Cuban salsa danced in a circle. This style of dance is brought by Gabby and Aaron Webb, who has the goal to spread the love of the music and dance of Cuba. They cohost a Timba (Cuban Salsa) Night at Akadi every first and third Friday of the month.
BARRIO is bringing together the letters and the literature of Cuba with the collective of writers of Homagno, who gathers a group of Cubans, professionals, writers, and artists, who have come together freely and sovereignly, by exclusive mandate of the soul. We will have Jorge Porrata presenting some of the work and books of this collective.
