From the Casa de las Americas, located in this capital, the agenda will also include the presentation of discographic materials and the launching of the 50th Anniversary Collection of Cuba’s new trovadour movement, one of the most valued in the region for its dissemination, quality and influence.
The proposals include a concert by singer-songwriters Frank Delgado, Diego Gutierrez and Leonardo Garcia to celebrate more than five decades of a company also devoted to the preservation of the Cuban musical history.
Last weekend, the country’s oldest record company and the José Martí National Library organized the presentation of the DVD La cucarachita en el cumple de la Egrem (the Little Coakroach during the Egrem Birthday), a show produced three years ago by the children’s company La Colmenita, directed by Carlos Alberto Cremata.
