Cuba Music Week is a live and online effort – both crowd sourced and curated – to highlight the importance and beauty of Cuban Music. One goal is to introduce you to ideas and music from this vibrant culture. A good place to start is our databases, listing the Cuban recordings here at the ARC, and glossaries of genres and instruments. Just for fun have a look at the galleries of record covers. This site will remain active as an online resource to make this culturally significant body of work readily available to people around the globe for study and enjoyment.
