"Wemilere.com" is a Cuban dance and music festival with four-weekends of activities from May 12 to June 1 at different venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

It is a cultural dance and music tour of Cuba, says Danys "La Mora" Perez, artistic director of Oyu Oro Afro-Cuban Experimental Dance Ensemble. It is a scenic work that illustrates the genuineness of the African and Latin cultures that crossed the Atlantic Ocean and settled in Cuba.

In Cuban culture, Wemilere is a celebration dedicated to the Orichas of Cuba. Perez created "Wemilere.com", to communicate; traditional values to contemporary audiences. Technology is a part of the world's new language," Perez says. "Through social media, we communicate, come together and share information. With Wemilere.com, Cuban traditions enter a new age."

The presentations -- including workshops, lecture demonstrations, performances and a Rumba with celebrated singers and musicians. The festival will present new choreographers strengthening the artistic work of Cuban culture in New York City.

"We honor the Antillean culture by using various brushstrokes with a wonderful colors, using new theatrical accents that highlights the strength and beauty of modern art," adds Perez, who is a former prima ballerina of National Cuban Folkloric Ballet Cutumba.

A culturally diverse participation of Oyu Oro artists performing choreographies, with traditional fragments expressed through Caribbean songs, music and social dances.
