Exploring Vedado: Great food near University of Havana and medical center

This is a quick video talking about the great, cheap food locations near the Havana medical center, in Vedado, Cuba. This area, especially along 29th street, between F and D is packed with great restaurants and fast food locations. It’s right across the street from a major medical and cancer treatment center and just a few blocks away from the University of Havana. The beauty about this area is that it is remarkably hidden away. If you are simply walking along 23rd street (La Rampa) you will never even think to walk up F street or expect to find anything interesting there. This is the kind of area that only locals would know to explore. As a foreigner, you can go to this area of the city, eat some delicious food, priced very cheaply, and be completely immersed in the local culture.

In my Real Havana guide, I explore Cuba and Havana from a local perspective. My goal is to give you the basic knowledge to experience Havana like a Cuban, rather than simply a tourist.

Cuba Vacation Travel Video Guide • Great Destinations

Cuba is the pearl of the Caribbean Sea. Thanks to the colonial past, Havana – the capital – has plenty of palaces, nice mansions, cathedrals, strong forts, and shady alleys. On the streets the automobiles of the 50’s from United States create a huge contrast with the coaches. Trinidad is full of palaces built by the sugar barons, while Santa Clara is the town of the legendary revolutionary, Che Guevara. Guama shows us an Indian village and a crocodile farm, Varadero offers white, sandy beaches shaded by large palm trees and luxury hotels. In the Tropicana, the band is moving to a heartwarming music. In the famous bars, as the Floridita or the Bodaguita, we can remember Hemingway, and drink from the local rum or the cocktails prepared from it, moreover we can light a good Cuban cigar as well.

Afro Cuban All Stars
A Toda Cuba Le Gusta [Great Black Music]

A l’occasion de l’exposition Great Black Music(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRPE5mQH2eU) qui aura lieu à Paris du 10 mars au 31 août, Mondomix et la Cité de la Musique s’associe à Believe Digital pour une compilation unique traçant l’histoire de cette musique.
Qu’est-ce que les musiques noires ?
Il est impossible de relier de façon unique les musiques noires à une matrice musicale africaine « pure et authentique ». Pourtant, des points communs relient entre eux les différents courants musicaux de la diaspora africaine. Un certain usage de courts motifs mélodicorythmiques qui invitent irrésistiblement à la danse (le riff du blues, du funk ou de l’afrobeat, la boucle du hip-hop), un goût prononcé pour des structures rythmiques accentuant les temps faibles de la mesure (la contramétricité, le « backbeat »), la technique de « call and response » entre le soliste et le choeur, des échelles à cinq tons dites « pentatoniques », des timbres altérés qu’on entendait déjà dans la lutherie africaine et qui deviendront des « sons sales », les « dirty notes » de la musique américaine (la voix rocailleuse des bluesmen, la sourdine et le jeu wah-wah des trompettes de jazz, la saturation des guitares électriques…). En outre, les musiques noires sont intimement reliées à la vie quotidienne des communautés qui les ont vu naître : une dimension fonctionnelle affirmée là où la musique européenne avait patiemment tenté de s’inscrire au fil des siècles dans la logique de l’art pour l’art…
Cet album est divisé en 4 parties de 15 chansons : Les Légendes, Mama Africa, Les Amériques Noires et Global Mix. Une compilation reflétant toute la richesse de la musique Noire. – Guapachando : (Re)Discover the finest latinand south american Music Selection.
