The cuban race

Black

The project "Black" documents through Afro-Cuban dances the link that this ethnic group still has with its origins.

The dances of African origin that are still practiced by the Afro-Cubans pay homage to the African Gods, also called Orishas.

The conclusions of the latest genetic studies carried out in Cubatell us that black people possess approximately 65% of African genes, 5.5% of Native American genes and about 29% of European genes.
