Responsive - Bacardi Brief - Cuban Heritage

Cuban culture is world-renowned. Its colourful history is eloquently expressed in its fabulous architecture, its national traditions and local customs. The island boasts four UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Cuba’s international reputation for ballet, and for popular and classical music, goes from strength to strength. The restoration of its historic cities and the care of its beautiful countryside are acclaimed by conservationists all over the world. The exhibitions of its contemporary artists win international critical acclaim. Those who appreciate the Arts, colourful history, wonderful weather, good food and absolute exclusivity find Cuba hard to resist.

Havana used to be one of the world’s grandest cities, a fact eloquently attested to by the extraordinary variety and quality of its architecture. It is now one of the world’s most exclusive venues for very special events. Our clients, who usually wish to visit the island incognito, always require special arrangements to be made for their stay and for the parties they wish to host whilst they are here.

Cuban Music

The music of Cuba, including the instruments and the dances, is influenced by European (Spanish), American (Jazz), and African music. Most forms of the present day are creolized fusions and mixtures of these sources. Almost nothing remains of the original Indian traditions. Since the 19th century its music has been hugely popular and influential throughout the world. It has been perhaps the most popular form of world music since the introduction of recording technology.
