Havana songs are for the whole year
It has always been thought that Havana was a typical type of summer and party genre, both unfortunately wrong topics.
Fruits and vegetables can be seasonal, but this phenomenon does not happen with music.
The spaces where you want to organize these events can be conditioned by the weather. So, if we want to hold an open-air concert we will choose, as is logical, a time of warmer weather; and when the weather becomes cool, we will choose a closed space to protect ourselves from the cold. Therefore, just as jazz concerts are held in the gardens of Caproig (Calella de Palafrugell), Havana concerts can also be made to the auditorium or to the Palau de la Música.
The song of Havana has always been associated with “cremat” and the beach… Certainly there may be a relationship but it is not the only one. See if we are masochists that in summer with the heat and humidity, we have one or two glasses of “cremat” that still gives us more heat … It might be worth making us look at it since this drink is more suitable for winter. Then we could do concerts even in La Molina! Jokes aside, Havana songs can be interpreted by both in San Juan festivity and in Christmas time, you just have to work a little to change our mentality and have a more open heart.
