One of the most visually arresting features of these photos is the seemingly curious mixture of art with daily life. In reality, life and the arts interact seamlessly as an integral part of the Cuban culture.
As with many Caribbean destinations, Cuba features a laid back vibe with Latin flair. Locals and visitors alike can dance all night to the rhythms of Cuban “son” music at a number of nighttime hot spots. Visitors can also catch a performance by the famed Buena Vista Social Club, or spend an evening at the historic Tropicana Club.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. At the internationally-recognized National Ballet of Cuba, classical ballet enthusiasts can enjoy performances to rival any of the world’s best.
Contemporary groups like Havana Queens and the Contemporary Dance Company of Cuba fuse technical perfection with modern music and style. Another popular option is Habana Compás Dance, a women’s group combining live music with dance techniques featuring the use of drumsticks, castanets, heels, and percussive chairs.
Robles’ imagery provides a dramatic demonstration of Cuba’s unique and motivating blend of music, dance and daily life. But as the old saying goes, “experience is the best teacher.”
