Santiago de Cuba / Carnaval

    Newer Older

    Carnival in Santiago de Cuba is one of the most popular public celebration in Cuba that is held every year at the end of July. The carnival tradition dates back to the Spanish colonial times when the Spanish festival of Santiago was mixed with street dancing parades of the African slaves. Nowadays, without ethnic or cultural separation, many carnival groups of dancers and musicians perform on decorated floats in the streets, mainly at the Avenida Garzón, where a jury will choose the best group. A highlight of the carnival are the Congas, groups of percussionists which flow through the streets accompanied by hundreds of people dancing and singing popular songs. The Carnival of Santiago is a very lively event with a huge participation of the people, who compensate the general lack of funds in Cuba with beer, joy, music and dance.

      All of your work is excellent, but this one really stands out for me. The expression on her face and the movement in the background makes for an incredible shot.
