Events in Cuba

Havana World Music Festival

A popular new music festival held in Havana each March and organised by the new rum label Black Tears by Vigia which is marketed at the younger party generation of Cubans and foreigners alike.

Interestingly though, Black Tears is named after an old and traditional Cuban ballad, very popular among Cubans of all generations – the 1929 Lágrimas Negras (literally « Black Tears » in English) by Miguel Matamoros, which was composed in a combination of the traditional Cuban rhythms of bolero and son.

The music on offer at the festival is also a mixture of the traditional with the more modern.

    Vedado  is a central business district and urban neighbourhood in the city of Havana, Cuba. Vedado is a more modern part of the city than the areas to the east, developed in the first half of the 20th century, during the Republic period. In 2016 it was described by one commentator as the city’s « most affluent » section. The main street running east to west is Calle 23, also known as « La Rampa ». The northern edge of the district is the waterfront seawall known as the Malecón, a famous and popular place for social gatherings in the city.
