Cuba is an island defined by its mixture of people, long inhabited by indigenous people, colonized by white Europeans and built by African slaves. Each of these people had their own culture, history, and music, which has maintained and fused over the centuries. This paper will look into and address how the development of flamenco in Cuba added to their music culture as well as how other ethnicity, such as Africans, have molded Cuban style flamenco. In order to answer this question we must first look at the history of Flamenco in Cuba as well as in Spain, the Afro and indigenous role in shaping the music culture in Cuba, and the overall view and opinion of Flamenco in Cuba.
