Swinging Cuba from head to toe. Los Van Van, the sixteen-headed orchestra of conductor Juan Formell has been swinging for thirty years. Although their concerts still evoke comments from the more extreme right-wing politicians in some cities, the famous dance orchestra is still a welcome guest in the United States. They even once took a Grammy Award home. But in Europe people are also dancing at the concerts of Los Van Van, which leads Cuban music into modern times in its own way, by making use of electronic instruments.
