Dance in Guantanamo

Posted By: Nneka Opene | General | Mar 28, 2017

Gonzalez recently worked with two octogenarians who were skilled at the traditional Guantanamo dance of changui, a music and dance style originating in the middle of the 19th century which comes from the Bantu culture of Congo and the Ivory Coast and is one of the roots of salsa.  

Gonzalez is frustrated by the global popularisation of Cuba’s cultural heritage, which he feels is being cheapened, and is working on a new show called de.generacion, about what he sees as the degradation and commodification of Cuban culture.     

“Son, salsa, casino, danzon, kiriba – we are selling these popular dances simply as dances for fiesta, for the drunken. This rhythm” – he taps out the clave rhythm, the essential rhythm of Cuba – “came from the rumba, from the slaves who planted their pain and their needs.
“Guantanamo is a place which maintains its culture – maintains it rather than selling it. Changui is the only Cuban culture which hasn’t sold itself cheap, because those who do it, respect it.”

Most of us are familiar with screen adaptations based on ballets such as “Romeo and Juliet” and “Swan Lake”, but not so much the other way around. This has all changed with a new ballet inspired dance based on not just any old film, rather the most recent winner in the Best Picture category from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, called “Moonlight”; or more affectionately known as the little engine that could.
