Billboard: City Sounds

We start this week with the sounds of Havana. We will cover you with this city’s sounds, with its nights. It’s really tempting the offer for Fridays in the Iberostar Hotel Parque Central, so you can’t scape from it. If you want good Cuban music, if you want the show, that’s the place. Run to it.

In Music this and more: Trova en Santiago, Sabina and Cuban Trapton in Miami. In Visual Arts we have a peculiar expo in La Marca because they really want to mark you. In Dance, the presentation of the Cuba Spanish Ballet and Transitos Habana. In Theater, there’s a bit for all ages. In Literature, the presentation in USA of a Daina Chaviano’s classic. In Cinema, a film you can’t miss. And in FAC, everything, as always.

You already know the signs. The only thing left is to choose and go out. Don’t miss the sounds of this Island. See you around!
