The Cuban rumba and dance troupe Los Muñequitos de Matanzas hasn’t performed in New York in nearly a decade. Danza Contemporánea de Cuba, which mixes Afro-Caribbean dance and classical European ballet and was founded in 1959, has never been to the United States. Neither have the socially conscious photographers Adonis Flores and Cirenaica Moreira.

All those and more than two dozen other artists will take part in a wide-ranging festival of Cuban arts that will last more than two months in locations around New York this spring. The festival, called “¡Sí Cuba!,” is one of the most significant indications that cultural relations between the United States and Cuba are thawing after nearly a decade in a deep freeze.
