Sunday in Callején Hammel, Havana,

means being blown away by the murals and

the rumba, that dynamic interaction

between percussion, song and dance. ‘Rumba identifies Cuba . . . all music is born from it.’ So says Anga Diaz, conga player

Wwith Buena Vista’s Cachaito. Diaz learned from master Tata Giiines, still thriving in his 703, who took rumba to New York in the 19505. The two are part of a group brought together for the first rumba show out of

_‘ Cuba, with singers Teresa Caturla, Pio at» Leyva, rap duo Obsesién, and mesmerising

dancers including ‘Aspirina’ Chacon.
