Cuba's National Day of Culture a great success in London
Campaign News | Sunday, 6 November 2011
Raíces Cubanas, led by virtuoso violinist and musical director Omar Puente, headlined a fabulous night to celebrate Cuba’s national day of Culture in October. The event at Conway Hall was a packed out, fun filled evening which also featured dance and poetry sets from Tio Molina, beautiful boleros from Yuri Moreno plus a special set from guest Colombian singer Fabian Velez dedicated to the Miami Five. The event also heard from Cuban Ambassador Esther Armenteros.
The event was jointly organised by Cuba Solidarity Campaign and CubaArtista and featured amazing Cuban food and Havana Club cocktails served up by the folk from bar Buena Vista.
The crowd packed the dance floor throughout the night and when the evening ended everyone made it clear they would be back again next year.
