Havana, Apr 26 (Prensa Latina) The 12th edition of the "Un Puente hacia La Habana" (A Bridge to Havana) International Festival opens on Friday and is dedicated to this capital with more than five centuries of founding.

On chosen stages, Music will unite several Cuban artists and international guests, including Carlos Torres, a Spanish pop and ballad singer-songwriter known for participating in the fourth season of Telecinco’s popular talent contest “La Voz” in 2016.

A special guest is Dutch singer Jessy Yasmeen, who will perform on the first day along with Cuban singers Waldo Mendoza, Buena Fe band, and Karamba band, whose director, Jorge Luis Robaina, is the founder and the promoter of the show.

The second evening will feature the Los Van Van orchestra, Alexander Abreu y Havana D’Primera, and Torres.

One of the venues of this musical event is the Havana neighborhood of El Monaco in 10 de Octubre municipality.

The festival will close with the Dutch guest, the Karamba band directed by Robaina, and Manolín El Médico de la Salsa.
