Santeria Dance and Music Performance

One morning while in Cuba our group traveled to Guanabacoa and visited the Museum of Santeria Orishas.  Santeria is a religion that combines West African religions with Catholicism and was introduced by the African slaves who were brought to Cuba to work on the sugar plantations. 

There was a Santeria dance and music performance and at the conclusion our group was invited to get up and dance.  We had little choice, the dancers pulled us onto the dance floor.  It was actually kind of fun.
