The protests on the Island of Cuba started on July 11, 2020 at 12:00pm and the Cuban diaspora has been felt worldwide. The FIU School of Music has put together a series of concerts that reflect and embrace the Cuban traditions, Cuban culture, and Cuban heritage. In celebration of how music transcends societal, political, and cultural differences, we hope to bring awareness to the significance of Cuban music of yesterday and today.
