Port of Spain, March 5. - The National Folkloric Group of Cuba began its work program in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago with a colorful and emotional welcome by its Trinidadian hosts, an event which included the presence of the Honorable Keith Rowley, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, and two other Trinidadian ministers from the Portfolios of Commerce and Public Works. The Cuban cultural delegation, made up of 35 artists and directors of the laureate company, arrives in Trinidad and Tobago, invited by the "Success Laventille" Secondary School, located in one of the humblest regions of the Trinidadian capital, which has been promoting and leading a fruitful educational-cultural program which began in 2015 with the visit to Cuba of his musical band of Steel Pan, a national Trinidadian instrument. To achieve its objective, Success Laventille School has enjoyed the enthusiastic support of the Cuban Embassy in the Caribbean country and the Ministry of Education and the Trinidadian Chancellery, as well as the sponsorship of a diverse representation of public and private companies of the Caribbean country.
