Havana Nights

Biennial of the Americas

Though travel by Americans to Cuba isn’t impossible, the Communist island still bears the stigma of forbidden fruit. But now the allure of new Havana — its emerging music, dance, art and culture — is coming to Denver, at least for a weekend, thanks to the Biennial of the Americas’ Havana Nights. Cuban hip-hop musician X Alfonso, founder and curator of the Fábrica de Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory), a hip multi-disciplinary warehouse space in Havana’s primary arts and entertainment district, will headline a concert that includes salsa sensation Issac Delgado, the Acosta Danza dance company and more live music; food trucks will keep the audience fueled. The party starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 15, and repeats at the same time Saturday, September 16, at Denver Rock Drill, a mixed-use redevelopment site at 1717 East 39th Avenue in the Cole neighborhood. Admission is free; register in advance at eventbrite.com.
