Cuban night: Song and dance from a musical isle
by Jade Arroyo
On the evening of March 15 at the Teatro Ángela Peralta a special performance will take place showcasing Antillean music and dance. The singers, musicians and dancers, all from Cuba, will fill the auditorium with typical rhythms such as son, mambo, guaracha, bolero, danzón, rumba, chachachá and trova, accompanied by dancers bedecked in feathers and sequins, creating an aura of a 1950s show club.
