Brussels, Oct 15 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Culture Day in Belgium will be dedicated to jazz, a musical genre in which many musicians from the Caribbean nation have made relevant contributions.
Belgians, Latin Americans and Cubans will gather on Sunday in an event convened by the Cuban Embassy in Brussels, as part of the festivities that will last for two weeks in this country to show the variety and values of Cuban culture.
In a weekend dedicated to music, Saturday’s event was dedicated to rumba, a musical and dance genre that was included this year in the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Cuban Ambassador to Belgium Norma Goicochea stated that rumba is an example of Cuba’s cultural wealth and traditional expressions, a rhythm that has been a legacy transmitted from generation to generation.
During the evening, the book ‘Los 500 Secretos Escondidos de La Habana’ (The 500 Hidden Secrets of Havana), by Magalie Raman, was launched as an excellent material for those who want to learn about the Cuban capital.
