This summer it was the turn of Spain , where people from Aragon enjoyed it in the 43 Theater from the Exhibition of Zaragoza, as a proposal qualified among the best five shows of the world mega-event.
For the vast majority of the public, it was obvious how among sones , rumbas, mambos, boleros, congas and timba sounds, the show by the Alonsos was sustained on Cuban tradition of staging art, which has its highpoints in Tropicana, the National Folkloric Group and the Foundational Stage of Modern Dance and the strength and authenticity of popular culture.
The local press was big in praises towards the young dancers from the Yoldance Company, the musicians of the Pachito Alonso orchestra and the Kini Kini and the soundtrack by Edesio Christian Alejandro.
In general the best things were the organization and the display of a design where the lights, the set design and the wardrobe reaffirm the identity profiles of the Caribbean Island .
Before being in Zaragoza, Viva Cuba was in Pamplona . The newspaper Diario de Navarra named its report: All the rhythm from Cuba and remembered the lineage of the Alonsos in Cuban musical culture, with Pacho –“a legend of bolero, booster of the pilón rhythm”- at the beginning.
In the digital publication Voz Alta , there was registered an eloquent comment: “Very beautiful presentation; it is true that Cubans revolve the world with their salsa .”
