Cuba it is an archipelago, the largest in the Antilles.
It’s bordered on the north by the Florida Peninsula, the island of Jamaica on the south, Haiti on the east and the Yucatán Peninsula on the west.

Spanish is the official language and the Cuba population is considered one of the most heterogeneous of the world, consisting of whites, blacks, mulatto’s, Chinese and other Asians, in perfect symbiosis.
Cuba’s climate is subtropical, with warm temperatures. The annual average temperature is 25º C (77º F) in the summer and 22º C (71.6º F) in the winter.
The land is lush with subtropical flora and fauna, and tempered by trade and marine winds.
Amerindian Taino, Spanish, African, French, Asian and English ways of life took root in Cuba, but in the mixing of the cultures became something new and utterly distinct. The search for the essence of Cuba is perhaps what drives the vital cultural tradition
The arrival on the island of thousands of African slaves over the course of three hundred years created a wealth of new musical forms. Deeply rooted in African rhythms, the country’s distinctive music owes its melodic power to its Spanish colonial heritage.
