Billboard: Party with drums

To keep the party on, we have another one for this week. A big party, a really Cuban one: Fiesta del Tambor. Gerardo Piloto and Klimax will lead this edition, dedicated to Brazil and with a lot of concerts in many places in Havana. As usual, look down.

In Music, another super event, the unique Descemer Bueno concert in Karl Marx theater. But there’s even more. Visual Arts proposes a Zenit Tatto event, attention ladies! In Theater, there’re three plays you can’t miss. In Dance, an appealing presentation in Centro Hispanoamericano de Cultura; and in FAC a little bit of everything.

Start now. Search first and find after. See you around!
