We passed two enchanted lots before hitting our destination: one housed a building and was strewn with trash but the walls were spray-painted with all manner of vampires that seemed to say “stay away” but in a strangely sweet way. Next up was an empty and lushly overgrown lot, set up with cheap lawn chairs where a couple of young kids were just slipping through the gate for what seemed would be their own, private, unsupervised fun.
Cafeina is an enchanted place. The relatively small space is divvied up ingeniously into a tastefully arranged outdoor area, an indoor bar, office/kitchen area and gallery. The art show was interesting – a series of multimedia photos of Habana and other subjects. The bar is elegant in a European way: ceilings are high, colors dark including deep red, and the atmosphere cool. The outside makes use of strategically placed live greenery, huge fauteuils, a wicker-enclosed love seat, and high tops. Everything is tasteful without being obnoxious except perhaps the music which was a bit insistent and mechanic for my taste, all through the big game.
Heralded as the daughter of the Buena Vista Social Club, Osdalgia is one of the most multifaceted songstresses of contemporary Cuban music. Through her smoldering voice, humor and beauty, Osdalgia has enraptured audiences the world over with her songs of rumba, emotion filled boleros and salsa. Osdalgia’s Miami performance marks a long awaited and eagerly anticipated debut in the United States.
As young as Miami is, many of its neighborhoods have seen a fantastic rise and some have seen tragic falls. And so Wynwood is a bit like the mythical phoenix bird that rises anew out of its own ashes. The new life is being breathed into it as much as by new development as an incredible proliferation of art and artists who have made this place their venue and sometimes their home.
