Cuba’s record festival to be held virtually

Havana, Apr 24 (Prensa Latina) The 24th edition of the International Music Fair Cubadisco 2021 will take place online from May 15 to 23 with Spain as guest of honor, according to organizers.

According to the president of the Cuban Institute of Music (ICM), Indira Fajardo, the event is an opportunity to showcase the productions of the last two years, taking into account that in 2020 it was not possible to be held because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a virtual press conference, Fajardo explained that the most important festival of the country’s recording industry will be held in parallel on social networks and Cuban television channels, with 14 hours of daily transmission.

This is possible thanks to the alliances among the ICM, Cuba’s Ministry of Culture and the Cuban Institute of Radio and Television, institutions that worked in conjunction to offer a varied program of concerts, symposiums, documentary screenings and awards.

Jorge Gomez, the event’s president, highlighted the creativity that has characterized the phonographic and audiovisual production in recent months, which translated into the good workmanship and creativity of the pieces presented.

The festival, which celebrates the Ibero-American Year of Music, presents a new strategy in the selection of the nominees, with the purpose of guaranteeing the democracy of the process and counting on the opinion of experts from all over the country, music director Rene Baños noted.
