Music videos that capture Cuba for me

MUSIC VIDEOS THAT CAPTURE CUBA*

These music videos capture Cuba for me. The sentiment expressed, their joyfulness, and their rhythm is pure Cuba. (Note: The first few are from Orishas; after that they are from various different artists; and at the end we include some documentaries.) … enJoy!

NOTE: The list on this blog posting was developed pre-J11 – before the protests of July 11, 2021. I have created a YouTube playlist that tries to capture many of the recent – and not so recent – protest songs. Please check that out also.
