Cubans try to break Guinness world record with big salsa circle

Hundreds of Cubans gathered on Sunday (5) on Havana's iconic Malecón to set the Guinness World Record for the most people dancing Rueda de Casino-style salsa to celebrate the music of National Son of Cuba Day.

They also wanted to break a second record: the number of Rueda de Casino style salsa circles dancing simultaneously.

Dancers filled the streets near the Malecón to perform for ten minutes while spectators watched.

Rueda de Casino is a style of salsa dancing in which couples form a circle and spin at the same time following patterns.

Luis Llamo, one of the organizers, said that the objective of the event is to establish centers of 'son', a genre of music and dance originating in Cuba, in all provinces and to defend Cuban cultural assets, such as son music and the round dance of the Casino.
