CALI2CUBA is an organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Afro-Cuban culture.We seek to teach, nourish and engage the community by presenting fundraisers, workshops, concerts and travel experiences that bridge gaps in musical history and knowledge. C2C believes that promoting Afro-Cuban music will help create solutions to social, political and economic ills and create community that will make a positive impact in the world.
Offering Services such as: Housing, Transportation, Food, Educational & Travel Experiences.
Personalized packages and religious sensitivity is an integral part of our mission. Our trips are designed for people who are serious about studying their craft.
We encourage our traveling artists/educators to host an exchange workshop of their choice for the local community. This helps create an actual Cultural Exchange.
CALI2CUBA prides itself in offering one-of-a-kind experiences for travelers from all walks of life. We believe the best experiences are made when the traveler gets to create meaningful relationships with their instructors and get to connect with the local community. Our master teachers are the most in demand players and dancers in the local secular and non-secular music scene. This gives you access to the contemporary styles of the dance and drum and provides a fundamental base from which to grow.
At Cali2Cuba we believe that music is the key element in understanding culture and a lens from which to tell history. As an organization based out of the United States, we believe it is critical to understand Cuban music history because it has permeated American music, culture and society profoundly. Familiarizing yourself with these historical and musical links, you will gain a better understanding of our current musical, social and political climate.
As cultural promoters our job is to engage and unite the community wherever we go. Event planning is one of our specialties, we organize a variety of events ranging from concerts to festivals, fundraisers, master classes, and open street rumba's. This is a key part in reinforcing our community of artists and standing up for what we represent. We deeply believe the drum is one of the strongest voices, a tool that through history has helped amplify the voice of the people, with the drum we can make a positive impact.
The relationship between the United States and Cuba has taken a new turn, with this change comes social responsibility. At C2C we believe there is tremendous importance in working with the Cuban community to ensure the most beneficial experience possible for students and educators. This is accomplished by hiring well respected elders to teach as well as young cuban students looking for experience in their respective fields. Cali2Cuba’s goal is to bring jobs and learning experiences to artists and educators who seek to expand their networks and skills.
