Cuba is renowned for having one of the world’s most vibrant music cultures, and a Cuban music holiday is the perfect way to experience and embrace this firsthand. Cuban music is an energetic marriage of African rhythm and Spanish melodies. The music owes its African roots to the slave populations brought to Cuba to work on the plantations, while the Spanish influence is due to the island’s colonisers.

Famous for its Salsa, Cuban music also includes Rumba, Bolero, Mambo, Son, Timba, Conga and Jazz, so there is an assortment of music to satisfy anyone’s taste. The various dance clubs and bars dotted about Old Havana and Trinidad, alongside the eternal melodic humming of street performers, ensure that a Cuban music holiday has no shortage of opportunity to embrace the Cuban rhythm.
