Who are Havana Music Tours?

Havana Music Tours was founded by Chaz Chambers, a professional musician and an avid lover of Cuban music and culture. His primary instrument is the drums, which brought him to Cuba. Chaz first visited Cuba in January 2017 to study percussion. He immediately began developing great relationships inside the music community.

Not long after Chaz’s first visit to Cuba, he met his other half, Yami Cabrera. Yami is a Cuban musicologist and studied at the famous ISA – Instituto Superior de Arte, Cuba’s most prestigious music and art school. Chaz and Yami are both professional musicians and love to travel. They continue to travel constantly and design cultural and theme tours with their mother agency, Musical Getaways.

While in Cuba, Chaz experienced the highly recommended music spots, the cultural landscape, and its diverse people. Based on his genuine and qualitative experiences, he has worked with his team to craft unique and immersive tours unlike any other tours or experiences available in Cuba.
