Music in Cuba is very special. Since 1980 music education has been declining in the US - commonly displaced by sports. In Cuba music conservatories and general music education has maintained steady growth for decades. Cuban society has the tendency to provide equal access to the arts including music culture.

In the United States educational success is a series of numbers and test scores, art, creativity, and culture don’t fit well into this model. Cuba is a poor nation, but the basis of culture and support for young musicians has led to an incredible wealth of artistic talent and yielded a national identity.
