The cultural event was held at the Oswaldo Guayasamín House-Museum, a renowned Ecuadorian plastic artist and sculptor, who maintained a long and close friendship with the commander-in-chief.
Dozens of representatives of social and friendship groups with Cuba joined officials of the Cuban diplomatic mission and other countries to honor Fidel Castro, on the occasion of the 96th anniversary of his birth, which took place on August 13.
The activity was centered on a concert by Canticum Choir, mainly formed by Ecuadorian and Venezuelan children and young people, directed by maestro Frecireé Valero.
Songs such as the world-famous ‘Guantanamera,’ with simple verses by Cuban national poet José Martí, were part of the songs performed during the evening, where music from Latin America and other regions of the world was also heard.
The cantata was part of the program developed in Ecuador in August, to pay tribute to the Cuban leader on the anniversary of his birth, which occurred on August 13, 1926.
