An international public art project that brings together photography, dance and education to celebrate Afro-Cuban Rumba, returns to Harlem with an eclectic new program.

About

Liquid Heat | La Rumba Llama by artist Jessica Angel is a photography installation and international education program celebrating the rhythms of Cuba. Liquid Heat | La Rumba Llama will take place at Harlem Hospital Mural Pavilion from Monday 5 August to Friday 23 September as part of HARLEM WEEK.

Angel has worked with renowned Afro-Cuban dancers and the Pogolotti community, a Havana neighborhood famous for its Rumba, to create a series of vibrant, life-sized photographs that capture the energy and passion of Rumba. The never seen before photographs will be accompanied by a custom- made soundtrack including a reading by Alden Knight of one of Afro-Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén’s poems set to Rumba percussion.
