Casa de Revolution - Cuban
Casa de Revolution – Cuban – Kris Doe Traditional Cuban Son music can be heard throughout the streets of old Havana. Wandering the Vedado neighborhood, I was drawn to the sound emanating from a tall Spanish Colonial building where I was greeted by a large Raul Corarales print of Cuban revolutionaries Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. Venturing in deeper I stepped into an inner vestibule with high overreaching arches where local Habaneros gathered to listen to a practicing six-piece band in the shade from the thick midday heat.
