What’s on in Cuba?

International Festival of “La Trova” Pepe Sánchez, Santiago de Cuba. 
If you like the sounds of traditional Cuban folk music, you’ll want to hit this festival. Buena Vista Social Club member Eliades Ochoa organized a recent festival. Local Santiagueros are the heart of the festival, but singers and groups come from the entire island and throughout Latin America. Mid-March.

Celebration of Classic Cars, Havana. 
Recognising the appeal of its huge fleet of classic American cars, Cuba has organized a week-long celebration of these Detroit dinosaurs. Events include lectures, mechanical workshops, and parades. Owners from other countries are encouraged to bring their wheels to Cuba, and a caravan from Havana to another colonial city is usually orchestrated. Mid-March.
