They will celebrate in Las Tunas the 55 Cucalambeana Day

From June 30 to July 3, the 55th edition of the Jornada Cucalambeana, one of the most important gatherings of peasant culture in Latin America, will take place in Las Tunas.

And it will happen again in that province, where Juan Cristóbal Napoles Fajardo, El Cucalambé, one of the most important popular poets of the 19th century in Cuba, was born.

Activities are announced in various artistic manifestations, art and culinary exhibitions, dances, crafts, songs and poetry recitals. Also theoretical spaces that on this occasion will focus on research on the life and work of Jesús Orta Ruíz, the Naborí Indian, on the centenary of his birth.

In El Cornito, a local monument in Las Tunas and home to Napoles Fajardo, several of the main activities planned in the program will take place, including the Catauro de la Décima, by the Hermanos Saíz Association, the improvised verse contest “Justo Vega” and the written tenth “Cucalambé”.

A tribute will be paid to the Palmas y Cañas program on its 63rd anniversary and to the Impacto, Orígenes and Cueybá dance groups.
