Punk Cubano is the first digital archive dedicated to Cuban punk culture. Published in Spanish in 2020, the site gives access to the music production of 26 Cuban bands, as well as to several short testimonials about the experience of being punk in the island. This archive serves a double purpose: to work as a tool for Cuban musicians to publish their music, and to make information about Cuban punk accessible to anyone with an interest in it. 

The site was curated and published by Dr. Carmen Torre Perez, with permission from the featured bands/individuals, and the pictures and video testimonials were taken/recorded by Samuel Reina Calvo. See the priject here: http://punkcubano.net/
Dr. Perez graduated from the Hispanic Studies program at Penn in 2022 and is currently lecuturer at Boston University.
