Cuban culture is a colorful, interesting, an often bizarre mix. This mix of different, often contrasting, factors and influences can be seen at many levels of Cuban culture.  In Cuba, the intermingling of races is one the most obvious examples.


The Cuban Revolution has greatly affected Cuban culture, down to the most basic levels of daily life.  Despite the often shallow Revolutionary propaganda spouted by the Government (sometimes in billboard form), the revolutionary cause has become thoroughly embedded in Cuban culture.  This is because many Cubans greatly appreciate the social benefits of the Revolution, especially in the areas of education, and health care.

There is a strong artistic presence among the Cuban people, whether from artists formally trained in state-provided art schools, or self-taught amateurs.  Cubans greatly enjoy music; in fact, several popular forms of music and dance such as salsa and the cha-cha-cha originated in Cuba.
