Cuban festival pays tribute to the Nueva Trova Movement


Cuban festival pays tribute to the Nueva Trova Movement

Santiago de Cuba, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) The 50th edition of the Pepe Sanchez Festival, the oldest musical event in Cuba, will pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Nueva Trova Movement (MNT, in Spanish).

A lecture on that topic, given by critic Joaquin Borges Triana, is one of the approaches that on the first day of the theoretical sessions will unveil evocations and transcendences of that milestone of Cuban music.

The emblematic Casa de la Trova, Céspedes Park and the Elvira Cape Provincial Library, located in the heart of the city, are the main venues of the festival, whose organizing committee is headed by singer songwriter Eduardo Sosa.

The Pablo Hernández Balaguer Music Museum, an institution opened nearly six years ago on Manduley Avenue to meet the patrimonial demands of a city declared by UNESCO a creative city in that artistic manifestation in November, 2021, will also be part of the event.

Valuable scores donated by journalist Lino Betancourt, who passed away in 2018 and left a legacy of findings and discoveries related to Cuban music and regularly attended these festivals, will be displayed in that center.
