Abakua

Abukua is an Afro-Cuban men’s secret society related to the Ekpe. The group is known for its elaborate street dances and the brotherhood is a strong social support network that holds both high expectations and affords great benefits to its members. The group was created by Cuban masons of African descent and has managed to stay mostly hidden for over more than 100 years.
