We are very excited to be a part of these festivals again this year in New York and Santiago de Cuba!!!
FESTIVAL DEL CARIBE - "FIESTA DEL FUEGO"
7/3 - 7/9, Santiago de Cuba
The Festival del Caribe was founded in 1981 by Casa del Caribe to show Caribbean popular culture and is considered one of the most important cultural events in Cuba. This year, Festival del Caribe will celebrate Mexico. The festival annually attracts nearly 1,000 visitors from across the Caribbean, as well as international visitors from all over the world!
If you happen to be in Cuba, please come join us! OYU ORO will be performing in the theater, event venues and street carnivals everyday between 7/3-7/9.
This engagement is supported in part by Mid Atlantic Arts through USArtists International, a program in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
