La Virgen de Regla, patrona del pueblo que lleva su nombre frente a la Bahía de La Habana y que viste toda de azul, se identifica con Yemayá, la dueña del mar. Con su veneración se funde casi todo el panteón Yoruba con la cristiandad en el sincretismo y la transculturación de lo africano y lo español, dando forma al mestizaje criollo en el que se basa la nacionalidad cubana.

This month, representatives of Havana, Cuba came to Harlem, NY, to introduce the country’s rich tapestry of music, dance, art, and culture to audiences at the Harlem/Havana Music & Cultural Festival.

It was a first time initiative, led by the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce and Rep. Charles Rangel, but planners hope it will become an annual event.

In these photos, styles by fashion designers like Mariela Caridad and others and music from artists including pianist Jorge Pacheco and dance by Compañía de Danzas Tradicionales de Cuba JJ helped to bring the atmosphere of Cuba to New York City during the Harlem Music Fest.
