Many thanks to the thousands of people who joined us this weekend in Gillett Square and at the Barbican for two amazing days of Cuban music and dance! That was some real fun!
All the photos of this incredible Cuba50 weekend will be uploaded very soon on our Flickr Blaze Group. If Pablo Milanes, Harold Lopez Nussa, Oscar d'Leon, Changui de Guantanamo, Son del Tropico, Yoruba Andabo, the mojitos and the hot sun made you feel like you were only a few feet away from the white sand of the Cuban coast (yes, that can happen in Dalston), and the dance workshops in the Britten Room together with the FreeStage performances throughout the afternoon inebriated you and your hips with the best salsa flavours Cuba has to offer - well, come back for more! Next weekend we are still speaking Spanish - though from this side of the Atlantic Ocean - with Carmen Linares and her passionate flamenco.
We are currently looking for images, videos and article posted on the blogosphere by the people who participated in these events. We will be posting some of these contributions on this blog very soon. Please, help us finding you tagging your photos, videos or articles "blaze" and "barbican".
Many thanks again!
