Research Opportunities in Cuba


June 22 - July 6, 2014
Fall Program: Last Two Weeks of September, 2014



Thank you for visiting my page about Research Opportunities in Cuba. My programs are geared towards those interested in music, dance and art. For U.S. citizens and legal residents, these programs strictly follow the guidelines set forth in the rules and regulations for the General License for travel to Cuba from the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Dept. of the Treasury. I can send you definitive dimensions of the General License. Email me for this information.

There are many pictures taken in Cuba on my FaceBook page. Also many others at my Earthlink pages.

While in Havana and Matanzas we will have ample time to perform many types of research, from meetings with world recognized professors such as Dr. Olavo Alén Rodriguez to investigations of the relationships between drumming and religion. We will also meet with famous and very approachable rumberos from both Havana and Matanzas. Participation in various religious ceremonies and rumbas are guaranteed.

Accomodations based on two per room. Translator/guide included.

A thought from me about the possibilities of things changing between the US and Cuba. As many of you may have read, there is a thawing of the decades old enmity between governments. This is, most probably, a good thing. My suggestion is to GO! before all the money and tourism hits Havana. Things will never be the same. Ever.

Are you interested? Please email me for more information.

As many of you know, US government regulations have changed regarding travel to Cuba. These regs are much stricter now, and cultural exchange/person-to-person licenses are no longer available.

I have decided to offer these programs to those who comply fully with the General License provisions of the U.S. Treasury Department, OFAC. Of course, those of you who don't live in the US are welcome on our programs!
