This lecture by Dr. Frank Luca will examine how U.S. tourists encountered Afro-Cuban rhythms in Cuban cafes and cabarets since the 1930s. Hollywood movies helped spread the rhythms throughout the United States, while Cuban musicians enriched and transformed the U.S. music scene. After 1959, Cuban exiles made sure that Cuban rhythms continued to influence American dance culture.
