Casa de la Trova-Santiago

Speaking of Cuban music and Santiago de Cuba without mentioning the Casa de la Trova "Pepe Sanchez " is impossible. This small building on Heredia Street between San Felix and San Pedro, has walls covered in images and nostalgia of Cuba culture and musical history. It is state music hall devoted to popular music, or better said, the music that defines Cuba.  Visiting here and enjoying a personal encounter with the “troubadors” as the folk music heroes are referred to, from the diverse neighborhoods of Los Hoyos and Tivoli makes for an  unforgettable Cuban cultural experience.
