HOUSE OF TROVA (SANTIAGO DE CUBA)
It is a picturesque institution located in the historical centre of the Heroic City (Ciudad Héroe) where authors and singers gather, bent on keeping alive the most beautiful traditions of Cuban popular music. With this purpose in mind, every year the Pepe Sánchez Trova Festival is held, where troubadours, romantics and bohemians leave their legacy at the birthplace of trova and son. You can ask yourself: What is the trova?
It is simply a synonym of guitars and poetry, of bohemians and rum, of love and street music; at least, that is how it was in its beginning in the XIX century.
Santiago de Cuba is an infinite seeding ground of a tradition that is very much alive. Visiting the house and being in direct contact with part of the rich musical history of Cuba makes it a unique and unforgettable experience that will burn itself into your memory.
