We are honored that Vanishing Cuba has been selected to be sold at The Shop at the Collection – The Historic New Orleans Collection.
Cuba has a long history with New Orleans. The Spanish used Havana, Cuba, as a model for rebuilding New Orleans in the 1790s after fires destroyed many buildings. Cuban influence in New Orleans goes back more than 200 years. Spain ruled Louisiana from 1762 to 1800. Cuban music made its mark on the North American and international musical landscapes. The fusion of diverse cultural elements in Cuban music, most notably of Spanish and African origins, gave rise to a rich array of music and dance genres, rhythms, and styles that can be found in Louisiana, especially in the greater New Orleans area.
