From Coffee Plantation to the Rumba Francesca

At the end of the 18th century, the Haitian revolution compelled thousands of white colonists, mulattoes, freed blacks and slaves to flee Saint-Domingue and seek refuge in the Eastern region of Cuba. This first wave of immigrants opened the way to others arriving from France until 1868. Many of these newcomers bought land in the mountains and established themselves as coffee planters while others settled in Santiago de Cuba. They left a profound influence on the industry, commerce, customs and culture of the region. Two centuries later, traces of the French presence in Cuba still remain. Among these cultural remnants is the "Tumba Francesa": a dance inspired by those in fashion at the court of Versailles and practiced by descendants of Saint-Domingue slaves in accordance with the choreography and religious traditions of their Dahomeyan ancestry.

Directed by Frantz Voltaire, 2013, 31 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.

A Q&A with Frantz Voltaire will follow the screening.
