The online event, dedicated to the 50th anniversary of that group from the 1960s, and the 70th anniversary of Muñequitos de Matanzas, also includes a discussion about the presence of that style in the poetic-musical creation of singer-songwriter Teresita Fernandez.

Dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Cubadisco International Fair and the 100th anniversary of Cuban Radio, this event will analyze the discography of Teresita Fernandez.


The event will address the musical presence in the new record productions of the Caonao Studio, the New Song Movement in Camagüey and the thesis on guitarist Patricio Ballagas, considered one of the most relevant at his time, along with Panchito Vargas and Alberto Villalon.

The symposium will include the research on music as a reference in the interrelation of peoples, especially between Mexico and Cuba, to the “son” and its role in Cuba’s identity and to the “punto” from Sancti Spiritus, characterized by the originality of its metrics and melodies.

On its StreamingCuba Facebook account, the Cuban Music Institute and the Center for Research and Development of Cuban Music, the initiatives cover several topics, including the rescue, preservation and promotion of Santiago’s artistic legacy.
