It might surprise some people but Canary Wharf over the summer is full of events and live performances, these can range from Funk & Soul Nights to A Summer Evening with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Regular contributor L Katiyo got in the party mood by attending the Viva Cuba night which took spectators on a journey through the music and dance of Cuban culture.

Viva Cuba showcased Cuban passion and humour when a cast of performers including 10 dancers performed dances of different rhythms with spectacular costumes from Havana’s famous Tropicana Club’s cabaret style, Son, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Salsa, Rumba and Bolero to more modern rhythms directly from the streets of Havana as Reggaeton.

Viva Cuba featured a live band comprising some of the best Cuban musicians based in the UK.

Our contributor was impressed with the show and she considered it outstanding, one of the best since the summer festival started.
