Cuba - Socialism with a Salsa Beat Presented by Photographer Barry Pell
Wednesday, March 26, 7:45 pm
Cuba, the ‘Pearl of the Antilles’, is the largest and least commercialized Caribbean country. Political factors have prevented Cuba from the onslaught of mass tourism. The result is a nation of picturesque colonial towns, intriguing Afro-Cuban culture, catchy popular music, and enchanting countryside. This presentation will explore the length of the island and describe how its recent revolutionary history has both shaped and preserved its culture. Based on Mr. Pell’s travels and accompanied by his photography, the program will describe current conditions in Cuba and the lives of its people.
Events are offered for individuals considering a move to a NewBridge community; however, pre-registration is required. Call Marketing Office at 781-234-9020 for more details.
