Huge party across the whole island
In a big party across the entire island, the Cuban people and the main dance music groups of the country celebrated another anniversary of the victory of the Cuban Revolution. Rock, pop, reggaeton, son, salsa and trova delighted party-goers of all ages.
A great dance fiesta turned the first day of 2007 into a party, marking the beginning of the New Year, with the best in Cuban culture performing for the people in a salute to the 48th anniversary of the victory of the Revolution.
The most famous orchestras and groups in Cuba -from Los Van Van, Pancho Amat, Osdalgia, Hayla and interpreters of rock, pop, reggaeton and trova- added their voices to the celebration.
The principal venue was the Jose Marti Anti-imperialist Tribune, situated on Havana’s Malecon seafront. Presiding over that activity was Minister of Culture Abel Prieto and Julio Martínez, the first secretary of the Young Communist League.
Festivities also took place in different municipalities of the capital, with major sites being the Latin American Stadium, Revolution Square and the working-class suburb of Marianao. The gala spread across the country’s provincial capitals and larger municipalities providing options for all musical and dancing tastes.
