Celebrate the holidays dancing the playful Cuban Rumba to live music by percussionists and vocalists. Stevie Insua - an electrifying performer and son of the legendary rumbero Felix Pupy Insua - will kick off the evening by demonstrating different Rumba styles – guaguancó, yambu, and columbia. Then the dance floor is open to all! Since rumbas are participatory parties, everyone is welcomed to dance whether they’re seasoned rumberos or complete beginners. Rumba is an Afro-Cuban dance which combines Bantu rhythms from Central Africa with Spanish lyrical styles. In the words of the great Matanzas rumbero Chachá Vega: “You had rumba for lunch and rumba for dinner . . . so, you had to learn rumba . . . young and old, with great respect, and consideration. It was a whole way of life. [In other words, we’re born with the rumba] and we will die with the rumba.”
