EVENT: Celebrating 10 Years of Bringing Cuba and the U.S. Together

On November 13, 2016, CDA celebrated our 10th anniversary in style with an exclusive concert event at The Hamilton in Washington, D.C., featuring renowned Cuban singer-songwriter Carlos Varela and Grammy-winning U.S. musician Dave Matthews. Each artist performed a set on his own and then took the stage together to give the audience a truly once-in-a-lifetime musical experience. CDA is so grateful to our host committee and generous sponsors for making this an unforgettable night, and for supporting our work to normalize U.S.-Cuba relations.
