Cuban music

Cuban music is very popular worldwide for its quality and authenticity. Many genres have formed the pentagram of the island. Some traditional ones, continue to be high in the wish lists of new generations such as son, guaracha and guaguancó. Others, a little forgotten today show why the ballrooms were filled: cha, mambo, guaracha and danzón. The most danced in Latin America and throughout the world are the conga, the casino and timba.

Currently the Cuban musicians also venture into the mix, in electronics, in hip hop, reggaeton and the many others who have inherited the undeniable and enriching foreign influence.
