Every year Cuba is host to a variety of cultural events and encounters, chief among them the Latin American Film Festival, the International Ballet Festival, the Havana Jazz Festival, the Biennial Paint Exhibit, the Biennial Festival of Humor of San Antonio de los Baños and the International Choral Encounter, to name a few.

Cuban musicians and composers also left a deep mark along their way, introducing rhythms and beats based on African percussion instruments, principally the drums, that are now famous around the world. In Cuba, ballerinas are at the height of stardom and popularity. In fact, they often earn more money than doctors.
