MUSIC

The now phenomenally successful Buena Vista Social Club, brilliant musicians invited out of retirement, was launched onto the world in the mid '90s, so no one can say they have not heard Cuban music; but the diversity of music produced in this small island and its influence in the world is unmatched.

The incredible mix of Spanish, African, Caribbean, Latin and North American cultures is a starting point but revolutionary commitment to developing future musicians via free music schools, established 1959, and 'amateur' folkloric groups, has continued to produce some of the best and most innovative musicians in the world today.

From Afro-Cuban jazz (Irakere) and Nueva Trova (Silvio Rodríguez, Pablo Milanés) in the '70s, to Cuban salsa (Los Van Van) in the '80s, timba in the '90s, and most recently hiphop, reggaeton, and fusions of son, rumba, rock and more.

Modern classical and choral music is also home-grown and Cubans see free live music across the country.
