CubaLandz will celebrate its second birthday at BOZAR on the 18th May! The festival is dedicated to contemporary Cuban culture and is your chance to discover the infectious energy coursing through the veins of the island’s artists. Over the centuries, Cuba's unique history has given rise to a tradition mixing European, African, American and Asian cultures. This melting pot has given rise to one of the most thriving contemporary cultures on the planet.
Immerse yourself in CubaLandz — Contemporary Cuban Arts as you admire the works of artist Janler Méndez Castillo or the intoxicating grace of dancer Yelda Leyva. Take a look on the most inventive work's cartoonist, the recent Kronikas #1 – Imaginary inventory ...by Maison Autrique.
Watch and listen to the ambassador of «Nueva Trova», guitarist Pucho Díaz, and be transported by Bao ’s Afro-Cuban music.
Special concert with the fresh new band Guiss Guiss Bou Bess, a collaboration with the festival Africa is/in The Future 2018.
