Cuba: registration of the bolero practice in Unesco heritage

Paris, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's ambassador to Unesco, Yahima Esquivel, celebrated the registration of the bolero practice in the representative list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, which she described as a result of great relevance.

It is a recognition of its universal, unique and exceptional value, with emphasis on the communities that carry it, the diplomat commented to Prensa Latina in this capital, regarding the decision adopted on Tuesday by Unesco’s Intergovernmental Committee for Intangible Cultural Heritage, whose 18th session is taking place in Kasane, Botswana.

The body made up of 24 member states gave its approval to the candidacy presented by Cuba, where the musical genre emerged in the 19th century; and Mexico, where it arrived more than 100 years ago, a joint dossier called “Bolero: identity, emotion and poetry made song”.

According to Esquivel, the record deserves the celebration and recognition of those who cultivate in both countries, and also in other Latin American and Caribbean countries, a practice that has been passed from generation to generation to express feelings and help social coexistence.
