Stories of Santiago de Cuba

EQUILIBRIUM

Pedro Antonio Sánchez is a trovador, a chef and a linguist. An artist who in equilibrium finds a commitment to how he sees life. He cooks all ingredients on a low heat to dedicate himself to his real passion: music.

THE SOUND OF EL COBRE

El Cobre, home to the patron saint of Cuba, has a special sound that springs from its Caribbean roots. When the Steel Band plays, its authentically Cuban sound rings throughout the community.

THE CATHEDRAL OF RUM

Santiago de Cuba is the birthplace of rum. A treasure that can only be produced with Cuban sugar cane, which harbours all the secrets of its land. The rum master Tano tells us about the essence and values of the world’s finest rum.

The City’s Curator

Santiago de Cuba has the oldest house and the most exquisite rum. It’s a city that witnessed the birth of the revolution, the trova and son music styles and Omar, a local that was born to take care of it.

The soul of the conga

There’s an irresistible sound in Santiago de Cuba that gets the city on its feet and bodies shaking. It’s the prelude to the festival, the emerging drums, the uncontrollable wave in the carnival procession. A sound that embraces you and sweeps you up...

Carnival Colours

In the Conga de Los Hoyos, the Santiago carnival starts much earlier when a festival of colour, fabric pieces and accessories cover the entire sewing workshop. Each celebration challenges Miriam’s talent as she makes use of every last thread to create unique costumes.
