Havana Rakatan @ Peacock Theatre

Havana Rakatan returns to the West End once more, bringing the rhythm and soul of Havana to London. Featuring sizzling live music and dance, Havana Rakatan is a journey through Cuba’s rich musical heritage.

Here’s the press release to tell you a bit more:

Havana Rakatan tells the story of over 500 years of dancing in the Caribbean island renowned for its party spirit. The impressive array of dance styles include ancient African rituals in which the dancers appear as African Gods and Goddesses, giving way to modern forms such as the mamba that caused scandal in the 1940’s, and the cha-cha-cha that defines the glamour and elegance of the Cuban woman in the 1950’s. This all culminates in the salsa, a spectacularly contagious mixture of all these forms.

Music in the show is provided by Turquino, masters of the Cuban dance music Son.

Dancing is from Ballet Rakatan, a talented group of dancers from Cuba, founded by Nilda Guerra.
