Music Education and Cultural Cuba Tour (June 2023)
Our Music Education and Cultural Cuba Tour is based on our belief in immersion as a primary education tool. Whether your goal is learning to speak Spanish, playing an instrument, or even dancing “Casino de Salsa.” Our hybrid educational and cultural tour is the perfect opportunity to dig a little deeper into Cuba and its diversity. The music in Cuba is complex and features many unique rhythms. This tour is for those that really want to learn more and get connected in Cuba and to Cuba’s excellent music scene. It can take many years to perfect a musical instrument, a genre, a dance, or even a language. This tour is a great first step to opening the door to more music opportunities.
Cuba is at the center of Latin and Caribbean music. Historically speaking, almost every music style in the Americas has its roots in Cuba. The Cuban fusion that happened between Africa, Spain, France, and indigenous peoples throughout the island is essential in connecting modern genres. New Orleans may not have had the same “Jazz” or “Blues” without the musical interchange between Cuba in the pre-revolutionary times. Cuba is known for its upbeat and syncopated rhythms. It is almost like every Cuban musician is a percussionist. (Well, maybe they are!) This is some of the educational content we will explore and learn during our travels in Cuba.
Each day on this tour is filled with music and cultural education. We will have a diverse combination of daily workshops, classes, experiences, good Cuban food, and late-night music/dancing. Daily classes by Cuban musicians, musicologists, and dance pros. We will learn the various styles and instruments in Cuban music. We will learn the various dances found in Cuba. Styles like Casino de Salsa and Rumba.
The tour participants will be able to select specific courses and instrument lessons. We will all stay in a large and nice private villa/BnB with private rooms and bathrooms. We will eat freshly prepared and home-cooked meals in our home in a Cuban family style. We will still have the opportunity to go out to a couple of famous restaurants in Havana.
