José Martí Dinner and Dance Sat. Jan. 31, 2015 Print E-mail

The executive members of the CCFA Toronto hope that you and your friends will join us for our Jose Marti Dinner and Dance at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the AUUC Hall at 1604 Bloor Street West. The AUUC Hall is easily accessible by TTC and is just 1.5 blocks west of the Dundas West Subway Station. This event celebrates the January 28, 1853 date of birth of José Martí, Cuba’s national hero and father of independence. Please scroll to the end of this article for ticket information.

 

Why celebrate José Martí’s life?

In his short life of just 42 years, Martí’s achievements seem like those of ten people, and not just one man; he was a poet, an essayist, a journalist, a revolutionary philosopher, a translator, a professor, a publisher, and a political theorist. In his early youth, he even studied fine art and drawing but soon turned his attention to activities that promoted Cuban independence and freedom.

 

He traveled extensively, spending time in Spain, France, Mexico, Guatemala, the United States of America, Venezuela, Central America, and the West Indies, all the time promoting Cuban and Latin American independence. Martí hated slavery, which still existed in Cuba, and also campaigned for its abolishment. In Cuba, so revered is Martí that beside the front door of every school stands his bust. For the above reasons, the CCFA Toronto celebrates Martí’s birthday.

 

Dinner

Dinner will be a traditional Cuban supper of congri (rice and black beans), salad, and chicken (a vegetarian option is available – please advise in advance), and a cash bar.

 

Dancing

After supper, you’ll have the opportunity to put on your dancing shoes and dance the salsa, mambo, cha-cha, etc. with Cuban musician Pablo Terry and his band “Sol de Cuba”. Pablo’s musical prowess and personal warmth never fail to inspire one to move to the rhythms! Dance sets will begin at 9:30 p.m. and 10:45 p.m.

 

Door prize and raffle

There will be a door prize – a bottle of Cuban rum – so keep the ticket stub you will be given when you arrive.

 

We will have a raffle for some items, such as a CD recorded in 2014 by Jane Bunnett and the all-women Cuban band Maqueque; a novel about Cuba, called Anita’s Revolution by Vancouver author Shirley Langer; baseball cards of Cuban players; and a Cuban baseball cap hand-made entirely of beer cans and leather — a unique collector’s item indeed! Tickets will be one for $2.00, or 3 for $5.00. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards supporting Cuban health care workers helping with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
