Sharing Cuban Music

Our Master Classical Music Violin student Laura Esther Riverol Mitchel came all the way from the Caribbean island Cuba to The Hague to study with us. The bright and talented Laura is also one of our Fund for Excellence Scholars. She is still in contact with her old friends from her studies on Cuba, but just as herself, most of them now live all across the world and follow their passion for music. In the difficult time of social distancing and quarantine, Laura and her friends came together online and made this cheerful video of beautiful Cuban music. The video brought the old friends closer and helped them to get through those difficult times.

The arrangement of the Manisero was made it by Jenny Pena, a Cuban violinist, some years ago.
