AFRO-CUBANO TERM Nearly 1 million Africans from West and Central Africa were captured by Cuba's Spanish colonists and brought to Cuba during the 16th through to the 19th centuries. As Cuba's plantations expanded in the late 18th and 19th centuries, so did the slave trade. Most enslaved Africans in Cuba were Yoruba from Nigeria. In the Cuban religion of Santeria, the Orishas are the emissaries of Olodumare or God almighty. They rule over the forces of nature and the endeavors of humanity. They recognise themselves and are recognised through their different numbers and colors which are their marks, and each has their own favorite foods and other things which they like to receive as offerings and gifts. Each of the Orishas has a specific dance or set of movements and music associated with them. We would like to introduce to you the beauty of the dances seeped in historical significance,
Afro-Cuban Dance. Most of the dances are from the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria These dances originate from Yoruba traditions imported by enslaved Africans into Cuba . These slaves were controlled by the spanish and were forced to speak Spanish and convert to Christianity. In order to preserve their native religious traditions, the slaves gave their African dieties the names of Christian saints and thus continued to worship them. This religion is known as Santeria, and under disguise, many religious rituals, dances and musical traditions from Africa were preserved. Santeria is still practised in Cuba today.

Cuban Culture
Cuban Culture Cuba’s history provides us with the explanations on how and why the country’s cultural components are what they are today. Cuba is a very small country, but it is definitely a melting pot of cultural and ethnic mixes from all sorts of places across the globe. While Cuba’s population is quite international, there are three main ethnic lines that make up the majority of components in Cuban society. The aboriginal peoples of ancient times had an original contribution, despite the fact that they were later overpowered by the Spaniards and soon dwindled and died out. The Spaniards themselves where one of the most powerful influences in Cuban culture and continue to make up a great part of the backbone of ethnic Cuban society.
The picture would not be complete without the African component. First brought in as slaves by the Spaniards to replace the dwindling aboriginal population, their numbers soon increased and ever since have also had the most influence on the island’s culture. Evidence of the Spaniards is evident in the architecture of some of the colonial structures that are still standing today and in the language spoken by Cubans. African rhythms are always present in the upbeat, lively music that is constantly heard around the island and the delicious Cuban cuisine combines both Spanish and African techniques.

Life in Cuba Art





The culture of Cuba is a complex mixture of different, often contrasting, factors and influences. Cuba is a meeting point of European, African and continental North American cultures; little of the original Amerindian culture survives. Since 1959, the Cuban Revolution has also greatly affected Cuban culture, down to the most basic aspects of daily life. Much of Cuban culture, especially Cuban music , is instantly recognized throughout the world.

The paifang (arch) is on Dragones street. Main article: Music of Cuba The music of Cuba, including the instruments and the dances, is mostly of European (Spanish) and African origin. Most forms of the present day are creolized fusions and mixtures of these two great sources. Almost nothing remains of the original Indian traditions. Fernando Ortíz , the first great Cuban folklorist, described Cuba's musical innovations as arising from the interplay ('transculturation') between African slaves settled on large sugar plantation and Spanish or Canary Islanders who grew tobacco on small farms. The African slaves and their descendants reconstructed large numbers of percussive instruments and corresponding rhythms.

The Cuban population is a melting pot of ethnic mixes from every corner of the world. In the early days ,slaves cross bread with masters creating the mulattos of today. Later, people of Russian, Chinese and European decent created the make up of today's Cuba.
The first was the result of migration from the metropolis, which has been going on throughout Cuba history more or less regularly. During the first centuries, after the conquest, most groups came from Castile mainly from Southern of Spain. Later, massive migration arrived from Canary Islands, Galicia and Catalonia. More recently and during the last century Eastern European and Chinese immigrants have further enriched the unique racial mix that makes up Cuba today.

Cuban culture is a colorful, interesting, an often bizarre mix. This mix of different, often contrasting, factors and influences can be seen at many levels of Cuban culture. In Cuba, the intermingling of races is one the most obvious examples. The Cuban Revolution has greatly affected Cuban culture, down to the most basic levels of daily life . Despite the often shallow Revolutionary propaganda spouted by the Government (sometimes in billboard form , the revolutionary cause has become thoroughly embedded in Cuban culture. This is because many Cubans greatly appreciate the social benefits of the Revolution, especially in the areas of education , and health care There is a strong artistic presence among the Cuban people , whether from artists formally trained in state-provided art schools, or self-taught amateurs. Cubans greatly enjoy music ; in fact, several popular forms of music and dance such as salsa and the cha-cha-cha originated in Cuba.

Cuban Society, Culture, Customs, Religion and People
Although Christopher Columbus (on 27 October 1492) officially discovered Cuba, aboriginal tribesmen (Taino) lived in modern-day Cuba for centuries before this date. However, notwithstanding Columbus’s discovery of Cuba in 1492, it was not until 1510 that the founding farther of Cuba, Diego de Velazquez, officially founded the Colony of Cuba (as a colony of Spain). At that time he also founded the great city of Santiago de Cuba (Cuba’s first capital city), as well as six others. Since 1510 Cuba has became a popular port of call for ships sailing between Europe, Africa, Central America and North America. Consequently, today Cuba has a magnificent diversity of cultures and customs. Nevertheless, Fidel Castro’s overthrow of Fulgencio Batista’s 20-years of dictatorship on 1 January 1959, and his replacement of the brutal dictator with a Marxist/communist form of government, has resulted in Cuba being polarized by the Western world over the last few decades. Cuban People
Due in no small part to the rich history of Cuba, its population is made of a wide tapestry of indigenous people. However, by far the largest part of the population of Cuba today, which currently stands at 11.3 million, are Spanish descendants (60 per cent). The remainder of Cuba’s population is made up of descendants from Cuba’s slave trade (Africans make-up 11 per cent of the population) and those of mixed race (accounting for 22 per cent of the population).

Cuba in Viznar
By: Pedro de la Hoz
September 01, 2006
Havana, (Granma).- To the many tributes who brought Federico to us, alive, essential and necessary, there was another one added which because of its importance, even after days have gone by that mark a distance from the immediacy of the news, it is not possible to overlook: the voice of Cuba, of our poetry, was felt in Granada, on the same Viznar ravine, the site of the crime, after exactly seventy years of the felony being committed.
This is seen on a message sent to the female poet, essayist and promoter Aitiana Alberti, the daughter of Don Rafael and Doña Teresa, Cuban in her second nature, from Juan Francisco Delgado, the direcor of Social Welfare and Citizenship from the Provincial Council of Málaga, in which it says: “You were present on the tribute. It was to name Cuba and the more than 2 500 participants to the event began an immense applause to your adhesion. It was a memorable night, in which silence, cypress and black poplars from the site gave more life, if possible, to Federico and everybody else.”
There was read the text sent to the organizers of the event by the Organizing Committee from the International Poetry Festival of Havana, in which Pablo Armando Fernández, César López, Nancy Morejón, Miguel Barnet, Francisco López Sacha, Alex Pausides, Edel Morales, Virgilio López Lemus, Pierre Bernet, Andrés Mir, José Oriol, Vicente Feliz, Antonio Armenteros, Ángel Zuazo, Rito Ramón Aroche, and Aitiana herself, left their proof of the fervent loyalty to the memory of the murdered poet and dedicated “out cry and our anger, and an immortal wreath, to every martyr of that terrible war, symbolized by their passion and death.”
