Promoted by the Latin Institute of Music, the film, entitled “Santiago de Cuba, the first one on Ibero-America”, had its world premiere on the Youtube platform, the president of the institution, Daniel Martin Subiaut, informed.
He explained that the 16-minute-long material combines the mastery of Septeto Santiaguero, Conga de Los Hoyos, Enrique Bonne, and Omar Lopez, the curator of Santiago de Cuba, as well as personalities from the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC) and the Recording and Musical Editions Company, Egrem.
“In this documentary we witness the historic moment of the creation of the Network of Musical Reference Cities of Ibero-America, where a Cuban city is the first”, shows the document, signed by Martin Subiaut, who said that in 2022 a city of continental America will join the network.
The network aims to develop academic and cultural exchange for the benefit of the artists and inhabitants of these cities, who usually lead music as part of the culture, in order to constitute a space for the defense of identity and history.
Produced by the Municipal Directorate of Culture of Santiago de Cuba, under the direction of David Hernandez (LCA Productions), the documentary will also be screened on local television, as well as in public spaces in Santiago de Cuba.
