LOVED every moment!
mar 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Galeria Santiago Hermes is a MUST SEE when you visit Cienfuegos! The team is incredibly nice. The art and rumba performance was a breathtaking experience. He included the four elements of nature of water, earth, wind, and fire within his art piece and the performance. They also had an interactive Rumba dance lesson. They had the crowd learn the history of Rumba AND also learn how to dance! It was very entertaining and I loved every moment. The art he has in his gallery were amazing. Every piece caught my eye. I highly recommend for everyone to visit!

Art that gives a feeling
mar 2019 • Znajomi
Nothing about this experience was temporary. Everything about visiting this art galleria changed my life forever. Not only was I physically present but it made me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally present. The entire Hermes family was welcoming and filled with love. As I watched Santiago, the artist in his element live it made me come alive. Seeing how the three elements of earth, fire, and wind come together that we often times overlook made me have a new fund appreciation for life. Learning the culture of Rumba by professional dancers and having the opportunity to fully participate in doing the dance made me understand Cuban culture in a different light. Seeing how the roles of women and men are translated into the dance and comparing how it is similar and different to my culture made Cuba become apart of me forever. I would go back over and over again if I could because their is so much to absorb in this Galeria and so much to learn, not even 100 trips later would be enough to fully appreciate it. So much, passion, love, and respect made this Galeria one like never before and it will forever stand out in my heart.

#1 Best Experience in Cien Fuegos: Where Art, Music, and Life Come Together!
mar 2019 • Znajomi
Where do I begin? Santiago Hermes, his wife, and his team Trazos Libres are incredibly passionate about delivering a cultural experience you will NEVER forget! The sense of community is incredible while experiencing their performances with professional dancers, live music, live art, and dancing! They delivered a performance expressing the four elements of nature: earth, wind, fire, and water; four distant performers artistically flowing in their natural elements expressing how one is interdependent of the other. All while Santiago Hermes, who represents Earth, live paints on a huge canvas for the community to see and enjoy. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever experienced and seen. The event followed with a brief history behind Cuban Rumba, followed by Rumba performances, live music, AND audience participation of learning how to dance Rumba. It was incredibly fun! While there's live music, performances, and activities occurring, Santiago Hermes will come up with his palette and inspiration and ask if you'd like a painting on your cheek or any other appropriate visible areas of the body. Best of all? Right where all of this magic takes place, is where his home and art gallery takes place, which is btw BEAUTIFUL and filled with so much art that he has created throughout time. For those that may be concerned with the language barrier, the team's photographer also happens to be their proficient English/Spanish translator that will make sure you don't miss out on the amazing cultural experience! This experience is a must if you visit Cien Fuegos. #1 Best experience in Cien Fuegos: where art, music, and life come together!

Mesmerizing experience
mar 2019 • Znajomi
Coming to watch Santiago, the performers, and their performance was such a good experience. They were informative to explain the meaning and idea behind the rumba dance. After demonstrating the dance with lively music they led the crowd in an interactive rumba dance tutorial. It was so much fun and the performers were very patient. If you come to CienFuegos stop by to see Santiago's artwork as well. They are very inspired be the 4 elements.

I will NEVER EVER Forget Galeria Santiago Hermes
mar 2019 • Znajomi
This experience was pure art, soul, culture and excitement. I can still feel the emotions I had while watching the Rumba performance they did for us. There was live art, dance, music and fire all happening at the same time. Pleasure for the eyes ears and soul. After the performance we were invited to participate in a fun Rumba dance lessons. Overall this is absolutely a memory that will forever be engraved in my memory. Absolutely amazing. I wish Galeria Santiago Hermes and his staff and artist an amazing future. You can see the true passion they have and cannot help but talk highly of them all. A must if you can meet him, stop by his gallery or watch his performances. You will not regret it.

Amazing Art
mar 2019 • Biznesowy
Santiago Hermes art was one of the greatest thing I saw in Cuba. This very talented person gave a demonstration of his art work. He also performed a Rumba dance with dancers and live music that was held in the streets outside his home. Very friendly and charismatic people that make you feel welcomed. Someone planning to visit Cuba should visit Cienfuegos definitely the best.

Rumba a university visit
mar 2019 • Biznesowy
Santiago is a wonderful artist and Arts educator. He opened his home and studio to my university students so that they could experience the music and culture of Cuba, more specifically of Cienfuegos, through his artistic interpretation of the Rumba. This show included live music, professional dancers, and the participation of the public. Santiago and his wife MaryCid are warm and welcoming. My students were deeply touched by their interaction with the artist and his team of performers. It was an experience we will reflect on and carry within our hearts for years to come. I highly recommend that tourists and educational institutions alike contact Santiago and MaryCid for a customized educational and artistic experience at an extremely affordable price!

Beautiful Art
mar 2019 • Znajomi
Santiago's art is like nothing i have ever seen before and is extremely profound in subject matter and i wish i could have his art hang on all my walls. I really enjoyed Santiago's Rumba dance presentation and live art show that he held in the street outside of his studio. It was very cool to see the local dancers and artist create a story through dance and it was amazing and awesome. Great work!!

Beautiful artwork. Very reasonable prices. A MUST SEE!
mar 2019 • Znajomi
The artwork was beautiful, and the artist and everyone in that whole area was very warm and welcoming. Cuban art is VERY HOT right now - you should stop in and get yourself a few pieces! I got myself a bracelet, so I have a piece of wearable art to treasure forever and reminisce fondly about my visit to this pretty town and to this artist's home in Cuba.
