No vacation to a foreign country is ever complete unless it has an eclectic soundtrack to fill the air. On any of our exciting and exclusive tours to Cuba, visitors will experience the authentic stylings and native sounds of Afro-Cuban Jazz. You’ll be immersed in the delightful, vivacious sounds of Afro-Cuban Jazz, also known to many as Latin Jazz. The exciting rhythms and upbeat tempos will have you dancing your way across the whole island!

Marvel in the rich history of the greats such as Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo who popularized Afro-Cuban Jazz in the 1940’s. You’ll find their influence through the zesty bursts of sound, combining feisty instruments such as congas, the trumpet, bass guitar, claves, timbales, bongos, the saxophone, and the clarinet.

The unique genre highlights rapid rhythms, intricate stylings, and eccentric improvisation. Latin Jazz lifts spirits so high that you’ll leave all your worries at the door and lose yourself in the music.

Our comprehensive Cuba trips include the thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to actually learn Afro-Cuban percussion, complete with energetic dance lessons and lively teachings on how to play the bongos!
