3rd Annual Harlem Havana Music & Cultural Festival Celebration

SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 2018
2 PM – 4 PM

Join us as we kick off 3rd Annual Harlem Havana Music & Cultural Celebration featuring Oyu Oro, an Afro-Cuban experimental dance ensemble from Santiago de Cuba.

Oyu Oro is the brainchild of Danys "La Mora" Perez ─ international Afro-Cuban folklore performer, choreographer, teacher and dance ethnologist from Santiago de Cuba. The company is committed to the preservation of Afro-Cuban folklore as well as to encourage the cross-cultural understanding of the dance and music forms derived from African culture. While Oyu Oro’s traditional repertoire pays tribute to African lineages derived from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, Arará and Dahomean cultures of West Africa and Haiti, the popular dance choreographies also celebrate the national popular Cuban heritage.
