Rap at Delirio Habanero

Cuban rap has a new spot every Friday at 5 pm at the Delirio Habanero club located in the Teatro Nacional. Called “La Sesión,” this is an excellent option for lovers of this music genre, which is the pièce de résistance. La Sesión, however, is not only about rap—guests include the best DJs in Havana, singers and musicians from other genres, visual artists and actors from the stage. Shows are hosted by the Cuban actress Edenis Sanchez and rapper Bárbaro “El urbano” Vargas. La Sesión is sure to become one of rap/hip-hop’s favorite spot in the Cuban capital.
