The Havanera is a musical genre that has been on a "return journey", having originated in the 19th century in Cuba out of the contra-dance folk style. The rhythm was modified through the ancestral input of African music performed by Cuban musicians, giving rise to what became known as the Havanera.
In Catalonia there has always been a tradition of local groups singing Havanera music in bars along the coast.
Begur is the venue for a two particularly famous Havanera concerts. One is staged in the centre of the village (Plaça Lluis Esteve i Cruañas), and the other one is staged in Sa Riera beach. The typical flamed rum is available for everyone at both concerts!!!!
