The rural festivities of the Red and Blue Bands in the small city of Majagua, in the very centre of Cuba, are known throughout the island as an enduring social institution that brings residents from different generations into one or the other camp for friendly rivalry and competitions. Five of these community members, experts from four provinces and two representatives of the National Commission for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage will work together beginning 28 February to identify and define the various components of the festivities.
