The 2015 musical production is about the things Puerto Rico and Cuba have in common in
musically and culturally. A journey through the beautiful landscapes of Cuba and
Puerto Rico shows not only iconic places, but unique collaborations among Puerto Rican and Cuban artists performing together for the first time
to delight audiences with musical arrangements that are innovative and different.
As part of this new production, viewers will also enjoy one of the songs played by Cultura
Profetica in their first and only concert, so far, on Cuban soil. The group's performance of the
song "Te doy una canción" (I give you a song) in the particular rhythm style that characterizes
the band makes a very special collector's piece.
Salsa also has its special place and what better way to show it than with the talent of several
renowned performers from both countries, including and Pirulo and his Tribe with Alexander
Abreu & Havana D'Primera, Charlie Aponte together with Aimee Nuviola and singer Isaac
Delgado joining Juan Pablo Diaz.
