Viva Cuba is as much a journey into avante garde musical theater as it is a stylish documentary on post-revolutionary Cuba. It’s theme song Viva Cuba, is the hallmark refrain of the enduring spirit of the Cuban people. Songs I’ll Swim If I Have To and American Tourists ring with the heartfelt frustration with Cuba’s isolation and desperate need for commerce. Based on fact, Viva Cuba is a provocative blend of culture and expression presented in dance (African, Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Salsa) to original songs. Viva Cuba is a captivating story told with hot Latin rhythms and an exuberant song and dance ensemble.
