In ancient times, the harmony of the sounds of nature itself gave peace and tranquility to the men who populated the Earth and we can say that many years later, those exquisite songs themselves were imitated by thousands of composers, to produce what we know today as music. The one that makes our soul happy, as many say … those melodies that manage to evoke memories, that bring us enough happiness to move the body at its own pace.
And Cuba is an island of music and dance and in fact, that is one of the images with the most tourist acceptance of the Greater Antilles. A people dancing with all their soul in the streets to the rhythm of drums and trumpets, makes many curious and interested in that joy that is transmitted in all corners of this nation.
Boleros, sones and tangos, among many other musical styles, have reigned on this Island over the years, since Cubans have been a lover of music since their very birth, they are a dancer, partying and happy.
So it is the most natural thing in the world to listen to any type of music playing in all parts of the Island, even these new musical genres, more moved and at the same time more daring, typical of the Twenty-first century.
Traditional Cuban music as excellent attractions
According to research, the true traditional music of Cuba, as the purest expression of our culture, mixes rhythms and melodies both indigenous and introduced to the island, coming from other nations.
Some of the most popular musical styles have in fact, influence from other regions of the planet, with their touch of Afro, from Spain and even from China.
At the beginning of the 19th century, the so-called Cuban Punto and the adored Zapateo, in addition to the joyful Rumba, the inviting Conga and the music of the Cuban Carnival, prevailed in the best dancers on the island. These latter styles, mainly produced by drums and trumpets, brought everyone who heard them to their feet.
And we could not forget the eternal Danzón, known as the first Cuban national dance that arose in 1879 from wind instruments, with flute, violins, timpani and percussion. In addition, this music was in great demand in dances, as couples enjoyed the style of fast and sensual steps that this style promotes.
Very Cuban rhythms
The Cuban Guaracha, the Changüí and the Sucu-sucu are also rhythms of the Island, which have always enchanted visitors, although currently, with the imposition of different musical rhythms, these very Cuban styles do not have the same acceptance.
Likewise, the mambo, the rumba, the cha-cha, the casino, among others, are exponents of Cuban nationality and still prevail in today’s styles. Above all, the casino allows a large number of people to form beautiful choreographies to the rhythm of very lively music.
On the other hand, reggaeton is one of the new appearances, the result of the mixture of Reggae, Rap and Hip Hop and it is not authentically Cuban, but it is also very much enjoyed on the Island. The lyrics of the songs are characterized by being supported in the rhyme to make the song catchy and easily identifiable by the audience. The voices are strident and distorted with equipment to create a soft echo that gives more power to the words.
This genre is widely accepted by crowds, especially young people. The wild beat provokes a fast and strong dance style, and eliminates all thoughts that are not related to fun.
