Direct from Havana, Cuba

Tropicana’s "Tambores en Concierto" show is the mother of all cabaret shows based in Havana, Cuba. Acclaimed throughout the world as the oldest and largest Afro Cuban cabaret that first opened its doors on New Year's Eve 1939. One of the most lavish nightclub spectacles in the world, the show is set in the open air of a rain forest in Havana and has performed to over 3 million visitors. The cast consists of the best dancers, vocalists, musicians, cirque artists and choreographers that Cuba has to offer.


In the 1940’s was when the first series of shows would be created in the Tropicana Cabaret when Cuba was a haven for the rich and the famous. In the years to follow the show Tropicana was born. Compared to the ones seen in Las Vegas or at the famous Lido cabaret in Paris during the 50’s, Tropicana has become a legend in its own right throughout the world.


The shows have played host to such renowned stars as Nat King Cole, Josephine Baker, Celia Cruz, Liberace, Omara Portuondo (Buena Vista Social Club), Marlene Dietrich and others. Many nights the audience was just as famous. Marlon Brando, Sammy Davis, Jr., Greta Garbo and other Hollywood stars came to the cabaret. Beyonce and Jay Z were invited guests to see Tambores en Concierto during their visit to Cuba. The Tropicana Cabaret is the place to be on the island to catch a celebrity on any given night.


Tambores en Concierto and previous Tropicana shows have performed internationally in England, Japan, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and other destinations worldwide.
