Cuban dancer and choreographer Yaima Cruz will give a masterclass beginning with a demonstration of Afro-Cuban folklore, followed by the Cuban danzón, a dance with deep roots both in Cuba and Mexico. The music and dance steps will transport you to old Havana to enjoy an unforgettable day.

One day later, on Sunday April 7 at midday, the Ibero-American choir Tantanakuy returns to the museum and will delight the audience with a concert entitled ‘Sones del Virreinato‘ (Songs of the Viceroyalty) based on 18th century codices as well as with themes and compositions from South America.
