Cuban musicians developed popular forms that have become classic while undergoing steady change. The bolero, son and rumba have remained a living and transformative tradition in Cuba since the 1959 Revolution.
A native of Cuba, Professor Raul Fernandez taught at UC Irvine for 40 years and is secretary of the UC-CUBA Academic Initiative. He curated the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit “Latin Jazz: La Combinacion Perfecta” and is author of the books From Afro-Cuban Rhythms to Latin Jazz and Ontologia del Son y otros ensayos.
