Learn about the Orishas and principle tenets of the Abakuá secret society, Yoruba and Palo Monte spirituality, and contemporary AfroCuban life directly from paleras and paleros, santeras and santeros, babalawos, drumers and various community members & artists. We start off at the Yoruba Association and museum as we learn of the African Orishas and the traditions and culture of resistance Africans preserved. We continue in Old Havana stopping at famous sites chatting about the African history that has been erased in the name of tourism consumption. Along the drive to our Tambor-Rumba presentation in the (neighbor)hood, we will highlight AfroCuban figures, and events. You are then warmly invited into the home of a life-long practitioner of the Yoruba spirituality. During this presentation, in the home of a Babalawo, we learn the central role of drums, how practitioners dance & honor their Orishas and ancestors, and how the spirituality has evolved from actual generational AfroCuban drummers and practitioners themselves. We end with a delicious included lunch at a paladar. Your tourism dollars are going directly into the AfroCuban communities that our team members hail from.

AfroLatino Travel started in Panama in 2010, after producing my docu-series "NEGRO: A docu-series about Latino Identity." The series spans through the Americas about identity, racism, colorism & the African Diaspora in Latin America allowing me to make life-long connections with activists & artists. I am based in Havana with my Cuban husband.

We will visit the Yoruba association, a resource for the Yoruba religion in the tourist center of Old Havana, close to the historic segregated outer-walls of Jesus Maria, where AfroCubans were relegated. We continue to the 2nd developed barrio of Centro Havana & end in the AfroCuban neighborhoods on the margins: El Cerro & 10 de Octubre: named after AfroCuban Independence Day, October 10 1868. Most of our Cuban guides are from these barrios.
