The cabildos were essential elements in the survival of African cultural traditions, including music and rhythm, even after the Emancipation of the late nineteenth century, when the people were taught to adopt many of the ideologies of the Roman Catholic church. For a hundred years or so, Cuban music developed in its own way and was little known beyond the island's shores. The success of the Buena Vista Social Club in the late 1990s changed all that for ever! Now we all know and love the rhythms and style of Cuban rumba and salsa, and we all want to dance!
