    U S REMAIN IN A WAY CO EXISTENCE the ability to travel under educational parameters is beginning to ease up slightly Select schools and programs are being allowed to head for the island nation provided they meet several requirements in program scope and intent This past May Whittier College was able to offer a foray to the country under the auspices of a paired course in history and music As a result music professor and accomplished Cuban flautist Danilo Lozano and history professor Jose Ortega led 10 students through the sights sounds and smells of Havana Cuba and its surrounding areas Cuba is about as far as you can get from the United States within a 90 mile stretch said Lozano There are definitely diplomatic and political differences between both countries but in terms of culture it is also very very far away from U S culture The group prepared for this trip over the course of two semesters The students enrolled in History of Modern Cuba with professor Ortega in the fall and in Music of Cuba with professor Lozano in the spring The aim of the trip was to guide students through an examination of the richness and diversity of Cuban music its folk traditions and popular music and learn how its expression and aesthetics reflect Cuba s cultural social and political history It was a year s preparation and then you have the immersion experience to see whether or not the students go it That goes beyond any test added Lozano To being the 17 day sojourn through the island country the group first traveled from Los Angeles to Miami and finally to the capital city of La Habana While there the students visited Cuba s historical sites by land and sea Revolution Square the Fortaleza de
