Description

The spectacular, legendary TROPICANA cabaret opened in the Marianao district of Havana 75 years ago now, on 31 December 1939. The world-renowned “paradise under the stars” immediately became a cabaret that was completely different from traditional ones, where ballet, circus, carnival, bolero and cha-cha-cha went hand in hand with the mambo, the guaracha, the rumba and African rhythms blended with Latin jazz, samba and Brazilian music. There, under the tropical moon, the marvellous Olga Guillot sang the lines that would make her world famous: “Miénteme una eternidad, que me hace tu maldad feliz”. The Tropicana has been visited by Nat King Cole, Elena Burke, Bola de Nieve, Rita Montaner, Célia Cruz, Cheo Feliciano... and JUANA BACALLAO, the only star who, having been a regular at the TROPICANA since its beginnings, continues to sing ever week at the Gato Tuerto in Havana almost eight decades later. 

In Catalonia, we have discovered a twin of Havana’s historic bolero venue EL GATO TUERTO. It is in Vilanova i La Geltrú, at L’HAVANA XICA, a small reproduction of Havana to relieve feelings of nostalgia, where the 75th anniversary of the Tropicana nights will be celebrated every Friday and Saturday all summer long. The celebrations include the participation of a TROPICANA dance troupe that has come specially from Cuba. We have invited them to the Jamboree to inaugurate and salute this initiative, celebrating and recognising the anniversary of the legendary cabaret by way of a tribute. The evening also means the return of Juana Bacallao after her success at last year’s festival, reaffirming the legendary status so few artists can really live up to. A date not to be missed.
