Music, Plants and HealingSponsors: The Foundation for Nature and Humanity and Plenty, Canada. An encounter with the origins of Cuban music, its uses in healing and its foundation in the natural use of the land. This will be the fourth annual cultural encounter under the theme of Indigenous legacies of the Caribbean. Cuba's small but active Native population, along with the broader peasantry, sustain many natural ways, particularly knowledge of medicinal plants and of planting systems. As mountain folk, they are also repositories of the oldest of Cuba's musical traditions. They are among the featured hosts, speakers and musicians.
