The Havana comes to London as Sadler's Wells and Congas Productions present its fourth season of the popular show. The piece was originally created by Cuban choreographer Nilda Guerra in 2001, and has since toured extensively around the world and received rave reviews. The exotic Cuban passion is portrayed in a selection of dance and music including jazz, rumba, salsa and mambo. The production features Cuban dance ensemble Ballet Rakatan, they are a talented group of dancers with many graduating from Escuela Nacional de Arte de la Habana, a prestigious arts school. The dancers are accompanied by the Cuban band Turquino, which will be performing traditional Cuban rhythms and Afro-Caribbean tunes. The band came together in the 1980s and progressed to touring around the world before becoming part of the feel-good experience in Havana Rakatan. The music and dance in this much-loved performance is bound to leave the crowd with a smile on their face and possibly dancing in the isles.
