BEING CU­BAN IS A PARTY

Arte por Excelencias - - Cuba -

Being Cu­ban is a party: a party that is ce­le­bra­ted every day. We baya­me­ses take gre­at pri­de in being the sour­ce of the na­ti­on. That is why the Fiesta de la Cu­ba­nía is ce­le­bra­ted: the most im­por­tant cul­tu­ral event in the pro­vin­ce of Gran­ma. An­nu­ally, from Oc­to­ber 17 to 20, in the city of Baya­mo the­re is a call to re­flect on Cu­ban his­tory and cul­tu­re and, of cour­se, an in­vi­ta­ti­on to en­joy the works of our ar­tists and cre­a­tors who are art lo­vers and growers, who co­me he­re from all parts of the na­ti­on and the world. The ce­le­bra­ti­on brings to­get­her in­te­llec­tu­als from the va­ri­ous branc­hes of know­led­ge and the ge­ne­ral po­pu­la­ti­on, who in­teract with im­por­tant ar­tis­tic pro­jects, par­ti­ci­pa­te in bo­ok, crafts and tra­di­ti­o­nal pro­ducts fairs, me­e­tings of con­cert bands, sta­ging of plays and ex­hi­bi­ti­ons of plas­tic arts. Each edition al­so hosts a new edition of the the­o­re­ti­cal event «Cri­sol de la na­ci­o­na­li­dad cubana» (The cru­ci­ble of Cu­ban Na­ti­o­na­lity) an im­por­tant spa­ce for re­flec­ti­on and con­flu­en­ce of wri­ters, in­te­llec­tu­als and re­se­arc­hers, who dis­cour­se on cul­tu­re, iden­tity and na­ti­on, del­ving in­to its com­ple­xi­ti­es, re­la­ti­ons­hips and con­tem­po­rary pers­pec­ti­ves. In squa­res, com­mu­ni­ti­es, uni­ver­si­ti­es, sc­ho­ols, cul­tu­ral cen­ters and pu­blic spa­ces, aut­hors and per­for­mers show their work, cre­a­ting spa­ces whe­re the high­brow, the low­brow and the folk show their we­alth and vi­ta­lity. This very Cu­ban ce­le­bra­ti­on is a tri­bu­te to the es­sen­ti­al va­lu­es and tra­di­ti­ons of the na­ti­on and its pro­foundly uni­ver­sal cha­rac­ter. It is ce­le­bra­ted sin­ce 1994 and ce­le­bra­tes the Day of Cu­ban Cul­tu­re (Oc­to­ber 20), the da­te on which the Baya­mo pe­o­ple sang for the first ti­me the words of the Na­ti­o­nal Ant­hem, a his­to­ri­cal fact that con­firms the city as the Cradle of Cu­ban Na­ti­o­na­lity. That's why being Cu­ban is a party. Cu­ba ce­le­bra­tes it in Baya­mo every ye­ar, from Oc­to­ber 17 to 20.
