La Caridad de Ramón
"La Caridad" is the folklore ensemble of a group of people of Haitian
descendance living in a village called Ramón. It is located in a zone of
coffee cultivation within the municipality of Palma Soriana. The hamlet
lies above the banks of the Cauto river, which flows from the Sierra
Maestre in the eastern part of Cuba. Like the groups "Gagá de Thompsón"
and "Gagá de Barranca", "La Caridad" is a "grupo portador" - a safekeeper
of Haitian popular traditions in the Cuban context.
