Cuba Through Art and Music

April 2020
Cuba is complicated and enticing.  Going there is truly a step back in time.  A simpler way of life.  Fewer comforts, but more dance, music and smiles. It’s an inspiration for artists and musicians. A getaway for gangsters.  A home of a revolution. There you can experience natural beauty, history, art by day, tap your toes to Caribbean rhythms by night, and wash it all down with a mojito.

I love to visit the gorgeous beaches and hike in tropical forests, but what is really enticing is meeting extraordinary people from interesting walks of life and hearing their stories.  We have spent time with different members of Cuba's Jewish community and shares a Shabbat service and meal and visited with an independent film maker, a world-famous photographer, a horse whisperer trainer, a tobacco farmer, one of Havana’s architect and an award winning acapella group, just to name a few.

Travel to Cuba for tourist activities remains prohibited. There are, however, categories of authorized travel. The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has issued general licenses that  offers opportunities for U.S. travelers to go to Cuba under the government regulation titled “Support for the Cuban People.” Discover the island’s vibrant culture through interactions with locals and by supporting independent artisans, musicians and community projects. Meet the rising entrepreneurs in this extraordinary country now before it changes forever.

Steppin Out offers opportunities to travel legally to Cuba under the new OFAC Regulations published June 5, 2019. Following the General License category “Support for the Cuban People,” Steppin Out  programs include activities intended to strengthen civil society in Cuba.
