    “Exhilarating and rousing.”—The Guardian

    With vibrant dancing, spectacular harmonies and lilting Caribbean rhythms, the Creole Choir of Cuba has preserved musical treasures from Haiti, Dominica and Cuba within descendant communities in Cuba. The choir’s Cuban name, Desandann, literally means “descendants,” and its 10 inspiring vocalists sing impassioned songs that tell the stories of their Haitian ancestors who were brought to Cuba to work in near slave conditions in sugar and coffee plantations. Their mesmerizing sound, jubilant dancing and deep spirit celebrate the roots, resistance and irresistible rhythms of life.
