Ones who have learned to take pride in their country and cultura while also using the experiences of previous generations to map out a way for themselves to embrace and celebrate their own autonomy.

Check out the 9 Cubanas currently ruling Instagram while giving it up for the roots.

It’s an account packed full of bailar, strength and a pretty mighty six-pack.

Monique Gonzalez AKA Momo

The Miami-based artist first pierced the music scene back in 2015 when she took up the task of providing vocals to the “El Perdon (How Can I)” female remix featuring Pitbull. In the year’s since that appearance, the Cubana has popped up in the newsfeeds of HuffPost and Perez Hilton for her “rising pop star” status. When it comes to The Gram though, Gonzalez’s artistry really shines. The singer and model wields her account with the power of a purposeful museum curator, giving followers a chance to track her progress as an artist while also giving them a chance to glance at her style for major fashion inspiration. From pics of how to rock a hair scarf or casual sneakers, Momo’s looks are always spot on. In a post to her blog outside of Instagram, the Latina artist has described herself as “unapologetically Latina.” (UH can I get a finger snap emoji for that, please???)

When an artist like Camila Cabello bursts on to the scene with a hit about one of Cuba’s most beloved cities, ya just gotta put her on your list about rad Cubanas, yaknowwhudaymean?? The second generation Cuban-Mexicana and former member of Fifth Harmony has had a large and dedicated following for years, but it was her hit single “Havana” that blew up her name and, subsequently, her Instagram following. Subscribers to Cabello’s account will not get to follow the booming artist and travels to different locations around the globe but also get firsthand updates of her fleeting merch offers and latest projects.

Gisselle

OG Hipsters who love to boast about having loved Kendrik Lamar long before he went mainstream ought to tap into the artist that is Gisselle before she blows up the music scene. (Which by the look of her latest single’s success, could be any minute.) Still, despite her burgeoning music career, perhaps the coolest aspect of Gisselle’s account is the fact that the artist hardly uses her account to hawk her brand or advertise her business ventures. Instead, the account is much more personal as she brings followers into her life as a mother, Tupac fan, and brunch enthusiast.
