Jesus Rabbi Park in Contramaestre was the scene of the opening of the Cuban Culture Days, which usually take place throughout the country every year in October 10-20. The ceremony was enlivened by the Municipal Band of Music, and with the presence of the townspeople and the maximum leaders of the government and the Communist Party of Cuba in the territory.
This ceremony was also a tribute to the beginning of the Cuban wars for its freedom and independence, when Carlos Manuel de Céspedes freed his slaves and call them to fight against Spanish colonialism.
Two couples of Danzón Club also took part in the act, dancing to the rhythm of the Municipal Band, which had previously interpreted the national anthem and patriotic melodies.
The ceremony also served to make known the recognition of personalities of the Contramaestre municipality who enrich and defend Cuban culture with their daily work, and the value of their work in pursuit of our identity as a nation, whose definition began precisely with the Cry of Independence of La Demajagua.
These days dedicated to the Cuban Culture are a tribute to the interpretation for the first time of the National Anthem of Cuba or Bayamo Anthem, written by the independence fighter Perucho Figueredo, and which was sung for the first time on October 20, 1868.
