Initiated by the sculptor and painter Salvador Gonzáles, this project dating from 1990 highlights the importance of African influences on Cuban culture. The idea was to create a cultural platform within the community. Every Sunday afternoon a rumba session is held and important groups, such as Clave y Guaguancó and Los Muñequitos de Matanzas take part. The last Friday of each month is turned over to recitals of ballads, poetry and traditional music and one Saturday each month the focus is on children's entertainment with clowns, puppet shows and performances.
