El Tucán, a modern-day cabaret in Miami, presents the rhythm of Cuba by hosting a historic three-day performance by El Tropicana de Cuba. More than a dozen dancers will take the stage Dec. 31 and Jan. 1-2 in their famous feathered headdresses and extravagant costumes as the group prepares for its 2016 world tour.
Grammy award-winning Marlow Rosado and El Tucán’s 11-piece house band will play alongside them. At a pivotal time in U.S.-Cuba relations, this marks the first performance by the Tropicana dancers in the states in 32 years.
“As a Cuban growing up away from home, I have always endeavored to build a bridge with the country and its culture,” says El Tucán’s creative director, Emilia Menocal.
“Bringing the Tropicana to Miami will mark a historic day in which the two unite, and what better way than doing this through the power of dance and music?”
