Organized by the Paraguayan Chapter of the Network in Defense of Humanity, the Cuba Solidarity Coordinator, and the Museum, the tribute predominantly consisted of songs from Cuba’s New Song Movement, an expressive means with which Feliu defended the left wing and progressive processes around the world.

Singer songwriters Ricardo Flecha and Sebastian Echarry, and visual artist Cristina Silva joined the evening event, held on Thursday, and evoked the life and work of the Cuban poet in their own way.

Feliu’s work is one of the references of the Latin American political song in the second half of the 20th century and during the 21st century.

The event closed with a single-voice performance of Feliu’s song Creeme (Believe Me), which many consider the most iconic piece in his repertoire.

Santiago Feliu, a founder of Cuba’s New Song Movement, died at the age of 74 when a heart attack struck him in the middle of a concert in Havana.
