1. Christmas, Easter and the dear holidays...

Just like every year, the holidays are a favourite travel period. And just like every year, DyM Travels can offer the complete programme of dance journeys, language vacations and other cultural preferences for the Christmas and New Year period. This is a big advantage for everybody who prefers to avoid the holiday stress and while enjoying an active holiday programme. And even if most agencies close for Christmas - DyM keeps offering the complete programme!

But we don't have any influence on the flight capacities. Still, we can help you with advice.

If you are planning to travel for Easter in April, it is also recommendable to look for a flight now. For example when planning to join our dance special in Cuba:

No matter if travelling alone, as a couple, with a small group and/or with children - we will find a suitable holiday programme for you...

2. Gems from Cuba on CD

It is well known, that many exceptionary artists who combine their musical heritage with contemporary tendencies are from Cuba. Today, we would like to point out three musical gems proving our point:

- Issac Delgado: Así Soy

El "Chévere de la Salsa" is back with his second album after moving to Miami. This is a first class album: music, lyrics, arrangements and of course Delgado's characteristic voice - a great piece of work:

- Tirso Duarte: Para Que Nada Te Pueda Pasar

Tirso Duarte is one of the most prominent Cuban artists at the moment. He became popular with his mix of salsa and timba. Now he surprises his fans with a reggaeton album. He combines the sometimes monotonous reggaeton rhythm with great singing and a timba touch. Reggaetón a lo Cubano. Here are the audio samples:

- Pupy Pedroso: Tranquilo Que Yo Controlo

You haven't danced for a long time. You are fed up with another grey November. Don't become desperate! There is a remedy for you: The CD of the former member of Los Van Van, César "Pupy" Pedroso, is the perfect material for getting rid of dullness. Would you like to try it? There you go:

3. Oana Catalina Chitu: Bucharest Tango

This CD is really special! It is dedicated to the time between the two world wars, when also tango played an important role in the Rumanian capital. The singer Oana Catalina Chitu has a wonderful voice which gives the titles a unique charme. The sonorous sound of the language adds to the effect. Only some of the titles are tangos, but all of them are worth listening to:
