HUMANITY´S GUA­JI­RO FE­E­LINGS

Arte por Excelencias - - Cuba -

Al­most at the end of 2017, Cu­bans proudly re­cei­ved the news that our pun­to gua­ji­ro had be­en in­clu­ded in the list of the In­tan­gi­ble Cul­tu­ral He­ri­ta­ge of Humanity. The spe­ci­a­lists of the Na­ti­o­nal Com­mis­si­on for the Sa­fe­guar­ding of He­ri­ta­ge we­re on a long jour­ney to hand in a de­tai­led dos­si­er to the twelfth ses­si­on of the Uni­ted Na­ti­ons Edu­ca­ti­o­nal, Sci­en­ti­fic and Cul­tu­ral Or­ga­ni­za­ti­on (Unes­co). This is the se­cond oc­ca­si­on on which a Cuban ar­tis­tic ma­ni­fes­ta­ti­on is in­clu­ded in the list of the In­tan­gi­ble Cul­tu­ral He­ri­ta­ge of Humanity. The first ti­me was in 2016 and it was the rum­ba. To know about the in­ves­ti­ga­ti­ve rou­te to pre­pa­re the dos­si­er, Arte por Ex­ce­len­ci­as ma­ga­zi­ne spoke with Gladys Co­lla­zo, the pre­si­dent of the Con­se­jo Na­ci­o­nal de Pa­tri­mo­nio (Na­ti­o­nal He­ri­ta­ge Coun­cil) of the Mi­nistry of Cul­tu­re of Cu­ba. «We did not start from scratch. The­re was al­re­ady a work de­ve­lo­ped in 2011 to de­cla­re the pun­to cubano as Pa­tri­mo­nio de la Na­ci­ón Cu­ba­na (Cul­tu­ral He­ri­ta­ge of the Cuban Na­ti­on) the fo­llowing ye­ar. That is one of the re­qui­re­ments that Unes­co de­mands to make the de­cla­ra­ti­ons worldwi­de. The dos­si­er for Unes­co had to answer five questions with ri­go­rous pa­ra­me­ters in only two hundred and fifty words. It in­clu­des pho­to­graphs and a vi­deo with im­por­tant tech­ni­cal re­qui­re­ments of no mo­re than ten mi­nu­tes. It was a very im­por­tant and emo­ti­o­nal mo­ment. Each de­cla­ra­ti­on be­co­mes a ce­le­bra­ti­on. «Many cha­llen­ges are ahe­ad. We al­re­ady ha­ve an im­por­tant list of de­cla­ra­ti­ons of the Na­ti­o­nal He­ri­ta­ge of Cu­ba. That is just the star­ting point to con­ti­nue working in dif­fe­rent dos­si­ers, such as rum making know-how and the par­ran­das of the cen­tral re­gi­on. The com­mis­si­on has a lot of work to carry out to be able to ob­tain the de­cla­ra­ti­on of so­me ot­her ma­ni­fes­ta­ti­on to be in­clu­ded in the re­pre­sen­ta­ti­ve list or as go­od prac­ti­ces of the In­tan­gi­ble Cul­tu­ral He­ri­ta­ge of Humanity».
