More traditional than last year's Cuban representatives at the Gateway, DanzAbierta, Cutumba were formed over 30 years ago in Santiago de Cuba with the aim of promoting Afro-Cuban dance, at home and abroad. <P>The watchword here is energy. Ten dancers, five musicians and three vocalists stay fully charged for the entire show, producing 70 minutes of vibrant movement, intoxicating rhythms and emotive songs, all sung in Spanish.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A>
