Over 10 days, a varied cultural program, under the title of Habanarte, will offer “all the arts at once,” the maxim which has defined the festival since its first edition in 2014.
With a show led by Isaac Delgado, also featuring Adalberto Álvarez y su son and Venezuelan salsa band La Dimen sión Latina in the National Theatre’s Avellaneda Hall, the event will begin today at 8:30pm and continue though Sunday, September 31.
In addition to La Dimensión Lati na, other international artists will be participating in the Habanarte Festival, including Argentine music project Tik, scheduled to perform September 10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Casa de las Américas, while CJ Ramone, former member of the New York punk band The Ramones will hold various gigs throughout the festival, including a final concert in the Casa del Alba on September 13, at 8:00 p.m.
As well as music, the program includes visual arts expositions, performances by theatre and dance groups, film screenings, workshops, talks and guided visits around museums and other cultural institutions.
Around 700 presentations by 1,500 artists will bring this second edition of Habanarte to life, an event which will take place across almost all the capital’s cultural institutions, inviting the public to take part.
