    From March 8-13 Havana will again host the drum festival and competition. the festival is city wide with events taking place from morning into the wee hours and ranging from symposiums and documentaries, to dance performances to concerts of all kinds from rumba and Afro-Cuban folklore to jazz to traditional dance music and timba. There are also special events like the evening when Cuba's greatest percussionist will all share one stage.

    The competition has no age limit. Contestants can compete in one or two categories. The categories are drums, timbales, congas, bongos and batá drums. The winners will receive the type of instrument that corresponds to the category they won. An award will also be given to the best female participant and the best child.

    If you're looking for a last minute vacation, this is great time to be in Havana and a percussionists dream!

    Here is the full program and all the details of the competition in Spanish.
