The last event I attended at Artes de Cuba was Tiempo Libre performing a free concert on May 20, 2018.  The two events I did not attend were Argos Teatro's autobiograpgical peice called "10 MIllion" and the great Arturo O'Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble.

Tiempo Libre one of the few Cuban bands in the US who are a good timba band.  I had not seen them for a number of years, but they still generate a high energy performance and fill the dance floor.

I thoroughly enjoyed the four days I attended Artes de Cuba.  It was amazing given the political climate in the US that this event actually happened.  The one criticism I have of the event is that there were no rumba and folkoric groups, which I believe was a serious omission.  In spite of this Artes de Cuba displayed how vibrant and creative Cuban culture is.
