5, 50, 500 YEARS OF TRADITION commemorates the multiplicity and interconnectivity of time-honored and experimental performance arts in the Bay Area, Cuba, and the Americas. Expanding on previous festivals, the Fifth Annual CubaCaribe Festival of Dance & Music spotlights the hybrid aesthetic practices that proliferate along cultural pathways crisscrossing the Americas—including Native American, Mexican, Peruvian, Brazilian, Haitian, Cuban, and African-American dance, music, and song.

 

5, 50, 500 YEARS OF TRADITION marks 5 years of CubaCaribe festivals and the organization’s continuing support of the arts; celebrates the vital performance arts that emerged as landmarks in the Cuban social landscape during the 50 years since the 1959 revolution; and commemorates the acts of creative tenacity, devotion, adaptation, and transgression that fueled cultural continuity and revitalization in the 500 years since colonization in the Americas.
