Cuban Hip Hop artist X Alfonso in Denver


Though travel by Americans to Cuba isn’t impossible, the Communist island still bears the stigma of forbidden fruit. But now the allure of new Havana — its emerging music, dance, art and culture — is coming to Denver, at least for a weekend, thanks to the Biennial of the Americas’ Havana Nights. Cuban hip-hop musician X Alfonso, founder and curator of the Fábrica de Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory), a hip multi-disciplinary warehouse space in Havana’s primary arts and entertainment district, will headline a concert that includes salsa sensation Issac Delgado, the Acosta Danza dance company and more live music; food trucks will keep the audience fueled. The party starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 15, and repeats at the same time Saturday, September 16, at Denver Rock Drill, a mixed-use redevelopment site at 1717 East 39th Avenue in the Cole neighborhood. Admission is free; register in advance at
