Fifteen artists will perform folk and Latin American dances, including the mambo, casino, rumba, son and chachacha, and introduce traditional musical instruments.
At a meeting with the artists in Havana, Vietnamese ambassador to Cuba, Vu Chi Cong said that their attendance at the Sea festival will strengthen cultural cooperation between the two countries.
