HAVANA TIMES — The Guaracheros of Regla (a municipality of the capital) are a troupe that each year can be seen at carnivals in Havana, with its rumba dance, drums and colorful costumes. It would be impossible to imagine a carnival in Havana without the participation of the Guaracheros.


However, on this occasion, the troupe came out on a date before the carnival on May 24, during the symposium Cultural Diversity in the Caribbean, held at the Casa de las Americas cultural center/publisher in Havana. The Guaracheros of Regla took their art throughout the long Avenue the Presidents and got Cubans and tourists alike dancing. Nobody wanted to miss the chance to join in.
