Cuba is just a few miles south of the United States, but to most Americans
it might as well be the far side of the moon. As the diplomatic relationship between the United States and the Republic of Cuba evolves after 57 years of embargo, the sanctioned People-to-People cultural and educational exchanges between the two countries are now the only legal opportunity for Americans to visit Cuba. And, there’s much to see, learn and inspire you.
As part of Cuba Rhythm and Views’ cultural exchange with Cuba, Robert Bonfiglio, Founding Director of the Grand Canyon Music Festival will perform with the Havana Chamber Orchestra and the Aldo López-Gavilán Quartet. He will also conduct a master class for some of Cuba’s most promising musicians at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana and the Benny Moré School of the Arts in Cienfuegos.
Our people-to-people experiences will include rehearsals and performances by such renowned groups as the National Ballet of Cuba, the Ballet Español de Cuba, as well as traditional Cuban music, Cuban Jazz and nightlife, architecture and historic preservation, visual arts, Cuban cuisine and paladares, and other people-to-people activities.
