Fire Festival On Fifth Day in Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba - The concert by singer Waldo Mendoza and the Uruguayan Youth Symphony Orchestra completed the fifth day of the 39th International Caribbean Festival, which began in this Cuban city on July 3 with the participation of about 30 countries.

Also on the list was the show to honor the rebellious slave, at the top of Loma de los Chivos (Goat Hill), where the Monument to the Cimarron (fugitive man) is located.

Some few hours after the Fire Festival is closed on Tuesday, two ceremonies of deep religious magic will be held with an Oda to Yemaya at Juan Gonzalez beach and the Mpaka Loading, symbol of the festival, as well as the Gran Gaga, a Haitian descent festivity, and a peasant celebration.

After several issues on history, culture and realities of the Caribbean peoples were analyzed, the International Colloquium 'The Caribbean that Unites Us' will conclude, during which some details of the ties between Cuba and Uruguay were addressed. This 39th edition was dedicated to the Uruguayan culture.

On July 9, when the Festival closes its doors, the call for the 2020 event will be presented. It will be dedicated to Belize and the four decades of the Siboney Recording Studios, a company on the initiative of composer and Commander of the Revolution, Juan Almeida.
