Habanero Rhythm

Society 1858 presented Habanero Rhythm, on February 8, in celebration of the Gibbes exhibition Vibrant Vision: The Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman. The auxiliary group’s winter party embraced the energy of the dance movement that was brought to Cuba by Haitian refugees in the mid-nineteenth century. The slow and rhythmic dance celebrates African art and music.
